Ava Fairy

I was lucky enough to be one of the winners over at the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog the other week and was therefore invited to be a Guest Designer.

The theme is Things with Wings and Clouds and I was given a lovely image from Bugaboo who are one of the sponsors for the challenge - make sure you pop over to the challenge blog for full details of the sponsors and prizes.

The inspiration for this card came from one on Vicky's Blog, I would never have thought to put these papers with dark green card stock and I have to admit her's looks a lot better than mine.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card using the same design and papers as the front.

Card Recipe

Papers:  My Mind's Eye - Howdy Doody
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Scalloped Circle and Standard Circle

Sentiment:  The Crafty Pad

Hi Pauline

I have just had a lovely catch up on all your gorgeous creations .. .. I have missed so much!!!

This project is so lovely and the papers are fabby.

I also love the Spring Daisy card you posted. Fabulous colour combo and cloud background.

Might be being brave with my tomatoes .. .. or stupid .. .. I will have to wait and see, but they were starting to get a bit leggy on the window-ledge.

Hope you have had a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

It's a sweet image and I love your papers too - they work so well with the colors of your image. Great idea to use black for contrast with your embellishments and panels.
