"Fairytale Dreams of You" My 3rd guest DT card for Dottie's World

Hi again!
I sure am having fun playing with the girls at "Dottie's World".
This week's challenge was set by Adele.

Adele said...
“Sorry everyone but it had to be done! When I noticed I had to set the challenge this Sunday I just couldn't resist it. I can blame it all on the stars, I am a dreamy, head in the clouds, Piscean after all!
Today is my 12th Wedding Anniversary and I want to see that romance isn't dead. I adore making cards but making cards for those people in my life who are truly special to me is the best type of card making of all!
So show me hearts and roses, flowers and swirls, just whatever makes you picture dreaminess and romance! Hmmm...now don't forget to include a Charmed Download of course....I cannot wait to see what you all come up with!”

I have already done a card with this beautiful "Dreamer Pixie" image from Charmed Cards, but I thought she was the most "romantic" and that is what the challenge called for. Besides, a dear friend of mine fell in love with the first one so I sent it to her as a gift. I think I will keep this one. LOL!

This card was done with Bassill and core'dinations CS and K&Co "Madeline" DP. I have popped parts of the image a couple of times for that 3D look I love so much. ;)
Here is a tip for you...
You can buy mono colored roses for less money then the multi tone so I buy the less expensive and tint the centers with the same watercolors I use on my cards. You save money and the flowers match perfectly! I did that on this card. See...it works!
Remember...you can click on any picture to see better detail.

Hope you will all come join us in this week's challenge. If you can't you can still go check out the other DT's awesome creations!
