Fairy Wishes

Good evening, the boys went to watch football today so I've had a lovely quiet day crafting.

For todays card I've used a lovely LOTV image from the die cut sheet called ' Thistledown Fairy'.

I used a gold colour Core'dinations card stock to back some free papers from Serif and sanded the edges to tone it down a little.  To add a little interest to the plain green paper I embossed it with my cuttlebug daisy pattern folder.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I kept the little flowers that were punched out with the Martha Stewart punch and glazed them with a little Crystal Lacquer to add interest in two of the corners.

The card is finished with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a sentiment attached with some ribbon from my stash.

Finally I decorated the inside of my card to co-ordinate with the front.

Image:   LOTV Thistledown Fairy
Papers: Serif Picnic in the Park
Tools:  Martha Stewart Flower Shower Punch, Cuttlebug Daisy Pattern Embossing Folder
Embellishments:   flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts, Punch Bunch Fern, ribbon from stash
