Say it with Love - Butterscotch Cupcake Fairy

Lexi's Creations Challenge #31:  Say it with Love .
Here is my take on the challenge. The first thing that came to  mind when I read the challenge title   'Say it with Love', was 'nothin says lovin like something from the oven'. I decided I would make a card that would reflect the sentiment of saying love with the offering of food.  When I discovered  Fairy Dust Crafts   had a fairy with a cupcake, it was a done deal! So here is the lovely fairy, the cupcake and an appropriate sentiment . Hope you enjoy her!

Details about the card:  it is an easel card decorated with wall paper for the background  and held in place (when opened) with gold brads.  If perchance the brads fail, the sentiment is raised  and will perform the same function. On the underneath of the base I added a diagram that shows how an easel card works to cover the dreaded brad tails. I added some glitter to her wings, the top of the cupcake and on the top of her shoes. A few butterflies and pearls were added and she was done...

I am quite pleased with the final presentation, not too fancy, but not plain either!
