Fairy Glen

I've actually managed to do some crafting this morning, and I have made this card to enter into the Lavinia Challenge,which is to use punches or die cuts, and also My Craft Creations challenge which is die cut shapes. I started with a background I had made using sprinky sprays and a glass cutting mat. I cut out the shape from an X-Cut die, then stamped the fairy, leaves and mushrooms. I added some glitter to the fairy wings and to what I like to think are seeds shes planting. With a piece of cream linen card I echoed the colours used on the shape onto the card, and added a deep golden yellow ribbon and bow around the middle. I then added the smallest butterfly die in the spellbinders range, colouring it with green ink. Finally I added some flowers cut from some yellow card with a crealies die, the leaves are also from a crealies die. It was all finished off by popping onto a 6x6 cream linen card base.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Lady Anne's Challenges - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers Challenge - Anything goes
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
A.R.T card Challenges - Anything Goes

Thanks you for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

  14. This is beautiful Sue! I love Lavinia images and have quite a few (including this lovely fairy) but rarely get chance to use them ;(..... one day, sigh! I love the colours you have used and that ribbon is lovely. The cluster of Crealies flowers and leaves is the perfect embellishment.
