Fairy & Toad Step-Up card

Denne gangen har vi to kjempeflotte sponsorer ~ Bugaboo Stamps & Rebecca Sinz fra ElvenStar Art ~ for Creative Fingers sin utfordring #133.  
Må bare beklage at DT bidraget mitt er en par dager på etterskudd, har hatt mye plager med hendene mine. (psoriasis++) Skulle ønske jeg var god på å lage kjappe clean & simple kort, men dette motivet fortjente absolutt mere tid og bling! ♥ 

Jeg har brukt et Sweet Pea Stamps gummistempel fra Rebecca Sinz. Motivene hennes kan kjøpes som digitale stempler på etsy, og dette motivet fins som 'Coloring Page Printable Fairy Toad Frog Fantasy Art'. 
Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

Sorry for beeing a couple days late with my DT card for this fortnights challenge #133. at Creative Fingers. Having dealing with alot of health issues lately, and my hands has been very painful (psoriasis++), super difficult to craft when you can't bend your fingers ;) 

We are again so lucky to have two sponsors: Bugaboo Stamps & ElvenStar Art ♥ and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations!

I bought a new fun Balloon Step-Up Sizzix Die (it's on sale right now!) and thought it would be perfect to use with the toad and fairy ♥ The round shapes on each fold is actually meant to have balloon diecuts on them, but it can be used for many themes :) 
You can see the designer of the die Stephanie Barnard show it here on youtube.
The gorgeous IndigoBlu gilding flakes has been added to the diecuts the quick and easy way ~ super strong adhesive tape! 
Think it must be the most time consuming card I've ever done, started it a week ago! Although it's an easy fold card to make with the sizzix die, cranking the bigshot was the worst on my hands, and was only able to spend 15 minutes in my craftroom at a time. On the bright side, it turned out very pretty! :)

My main motif is a rubberstamp from Rebecca Sinz, the artist behind ElvenStar Art. It's an old Sweet Pea Stamp, but they have since closed shop, and are not so easy to find anymore. She sells some of her motifs as digistamps and coloringpages (find the fairy toad image here) in her etsyshop linked below :)
