Fairy Happy Birthday

Today's card was made with an image and some two-tone ombre patterned paper that came with a very old edition of Making Cards magazine...

I cut out the image using a fancy braces shaped die and matted on black paper. For the background I used the ombre paper which subtly changes from green to blue, again matted on black. These were mounted onto a teal coloured base card and 3 black gems were added to decorate. The greeting is a very old LOTV stamp I believe.

I'm entering this into the challenges at:
