Spread a lil magic Fairy card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I've been playing around with my Oxide inks again, they are so much fun! I also used my star stencil again with my texture paste. Last time I created a card with a similar background I asked for advice on how to keep the stars white - thanks so much for the ideas Vannessa and Carol, for anyone else that's interested their ideas were to use embossing powder instead of texture paste or stencil over the background once inked, I love both the ideas and will definitely try them in the future.

I used one of my extra large Spellbinders dies to create the borders, I don't usually use them as they are so large but I realised I don't have to use the top and bottom as well. The background goes really well against the colouring of the Saturated Canary image but I couldn't manage to photograph it well, they look like completely different shades of pink.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
