I am loving these colours together! I can't tell you how cheery making this card made me - such happy colours! This was one of the LOTV stamps I bought at Harrogate. I couldn't work out why it was called 'Winter Wishes'; then I stamped it out and realised there were two great big snowflakes around the fairy!! So, I inked up the image and used a baby wipe to take the ink off the snowflakes and stamped. Can we pretend that the falling snow is fairy dust instead? I love this stamp and don't want to have to put her away until Christmas! I am sooo dateless sometimes!
The butterfly paper is from Magnolia 'Butterfly Dreams' and the aqua papers are from the Prima 'Sweet Fairy' paper stack; the edges of the paper are distressed with picket fence crackle paint. The metal corner is from WOC; it started life as silver but I slapped a splodge of picket fence crackle paint on it! The sentiment is LOTV and the muslin and flowers are from WOC. I got the pink lace ages ago in a big bag of ribbon! I was a very good girl and decorated the inside of the card to match (instead of leaving the card half finished and then having a huge pile of cards to finish off!!!)
I made the card after seeing the sketch over at Papertake Weekly. I do like a challenge that's a proper challenge - to try something I wouldn't usually do! I'm loving this sketch and can see it getting used a lot in future!
