Time to Relax

I am now officially on my summer holidays and once I get my assignment completed for the course I'm doing next week it will be time to relax! Saturdays are always a fairly relaxed day anyway and full of crafting and this card is for Crafty Ribbons Challenge #98 to use fairies and ribbon, Creative Inspirations Challenge #274 to use distressing, Papertake Weekly's Challenge to use buttons, bows and bling, for Lili of the Valley's July Challenge to use at least 2 different things from LOTV (I used 3 - 2 stamps and patterned papers!) and for Open-Minded Crafting Challenge #15 Vacation Related - I think my fairy looks like she's on vacation don't you?!

And here she is...I distressed all the edges with my distressing tool and used some of my new gorgeous patterned papers from LOTV too.
