Crafts and me challenge - "vintage / distressed"

Hello guys.. still the beautiful weather is with us... i am enjoying this so much, and the rest of the week ahead to enjoy.
just wanted to share my latest card that fits neatly into the challenge over at Crafts and me this week.

i fought with myself to use these Graphic 45 papers they are really too nice  to use... they are called " Once upon a springtime". The fairy is a lili of the valley image, coloured with my are from Wild Orchid,pearl pin from the hobby House and my fav seam binding in cream...

I don't know if you can tell , but the wings are 3d'd, and sprinkled with glitter. I love these papers , they have a truly nostalgic feel.
