Fairy Flora Sprinkles Her Happy Dust!

Hi All!  I hope you are all having a Happy Fourth of July!  Lovely weather here in Wisconsin...a little chilly, but so much better than last year's 104 degrees!

Fairy Flora is a delightful stamp from Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps.  The Happy Dust Saying and Fairy Dust Bag are also theirs.  I absolutely love their stamps, but these two always make me laugh.  The sentiment, along with Fairy Flora are my favorite funny stamps!
I stamped the background stamp of Flora with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on watercolor paper (I love stamping on it) and then stamped her again on watercolor paper and colored her with Copics.  I fuzzy cut her (dress, head and wings) and and attached her on top of her other image.   I added bakers twine around the edge attaching it with star brads.  I added Golden Rod Stickles to her crown, cuffs, necklace, and wand.  I used Diamond Stickles on the Fairy Dust Bag, top/bottom/dots of the sentiment and and the blue Card Candy.  I'm showing a close-up of the Fairy Dust Bag as the reflection made it unable to be seen in the card photo.  Adding the Diamond Stickles changed the Blue Card Candy into an aqua-like color.  It's a little difficult to see in the card so I added this picture.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
