Allsorts 423 - Magical and Mythical

Hi everyone, happy weekend! Hope it's a nice and sunny one for you!
This week it's my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts, and I would like to see "All things Magical and Mythical". Lots of possibilities here ... fairies, mermaids, gnomes,  dragons, and so much more! I do hope you'll play along this week. Brenda lined up some wonderful prizes, check them out on the challenge blog and see what other magical creations the Design Team is sharing! 

For my card this week I inked up Midsummer's Night by LOTV. This stamp is older but fairly new to me and my first time using it. It's been stamped onto Stampin Up kraft card stock and colored with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I inked the edges using versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder onto the versamark and heat embossed to give the card a white edge.
Glitter was added to the wings, stars and the moon. I've had the birthday sentiment forever, probably picked up at Hobby Lobby, it's by Stampabilities. The Dare to Dream sentiment is from the retired set Dreams and Dragons by Stampin Up. 
Finished off the card by adding the prima flowers and a flourish die cut (Whimsy Stamps die). Not sure if I like the flowers though, I feel like they are taking away from the cute image...The pretty lace patterned paper is by Authentique. 

And that is all for today. Thanks so much for visiting and hope to see you over at the Allsorts challenge blog :)
