Flower Fairy

Phew!  I never thought I would get this card finished.  You know when you get one of those cards that just won't seem to come together, well this was it.  I spent ages messing around trying to decide on backing papers, then coloured the image three times before I was happy with the colours  But eventually I got there and here it is.

The image is one of LOTV's A4 Stamp sheets coloured with ProMarkers, I eventually decided on some free papers from Serif - Picnic in the Park and teamed them up with another backing paper from one of my Bearly Mine Designs Cd's.  I edged the sentiment with a gold calligraphy pen and glittered the fairies wings, wand and the flowers in her hair.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

As is usual for me now I have decorated the inside of my card to match the front.

I am quite pleased with it in the end, even though it nearly ended in the bin quite a few times.

Image:   LOTV Fairies On Titoe
Papers: Bearly Mine Designs CD
Tools:  Nestabilities Scalloped Circles and Standard Circles, Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch
Embellishments:   flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon and pearls from stash
