A blingy card for a special girl!

My oldest granddaughter is having a birthday and she will be celebrating with her friends and family with a Minecraft party!!  I know she loves Minecraft but I decided to celebrate her artsy side and made her a blingy purple card for her birthday!!!  I started with a purple card, added an embossed resist flourish (IO) background (white embossing powder and watercolour) and then layered on two die cut scallop borders which I blinged up with purple rhinestones and clear glitter gel pen dots.  I trimmed the fairy image (Graphics Fairy) using an oval Nestibilities, hand cut a purple oval with scallop decorative scissors to layer below it and added another white oval below that one to nicely frame the image.  I layered a laser printed oval greeting punchie (SU) over a scalloped oval (SU) in the same colour as I used on the focal element and added two tiny rhinestones the same colour as the larger ones I used on the scalloped borders.  Thrifty Tip: I actually punched it from the center of the fairy oval to ensure it was the same colour,  I added a length of white vintage seam binding over the center portion of the card and adhered both ends to the inside of the card using double sided tape.  I adhered the fairy image over it using 3D foam tape and then adhered the layered greeting just below it on the right.  I tied on another short piece of seam binding using a single knot to simulate a bow!!  I did add some glitter gel pen dots to the scallops on the fairy oval just to finish off the bling properly!!  I am sure she will love it!!
