It's a "Midsummer Night's Dream" for July with the Dueling Darlings

I'm just a wee bit late for the July Dueling Darlings duel.  The duel is on the 15th of the month and 2 teams, the Divas and the Dazzlers, post their creations made from a kit sent by one of their team members on either their blogs or in the Splitcoaststampers gallery.  This month the team leaders for July, Heather for the Divas and Paola for the Dazzlers, chose the theme "Midsummer Night's Dream", based on the play by Shakespeare.  Because both Paola and Heather are from beautiful Canada they have asked us to incorporate a maple leaf somewhere on our cards in recognition that July 1, 2017 marks the 150th birthday of this great nation.

Here is what Heather sent the Divas:

Stamp:  CC Designs  "Cutie Butterfly"

Designer Papers:  KaiserCraft Botanica Collection "Roots and Stem", KaiserCrat Mademoiselle Collection "Flutter", Jen Hadfield SimpleLife "Blue Meadow"

Various Ribbons and other embellishments

Here's my card:


I used this sketch from Splitcoaststampers;


I added a colored my fairy with Copic markers and added a little glitter to her wings.


I hope you take time to visit the cards posted by my Dueling Darling friends.  You can find them here:
