Fairy... nuff??



Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies..

I'm back today with a card for the Sugar Nellie  blogspot...  and I felt the need for colouring a delicate fairy...  so I decided to use 'Live Laugh Love' - (which by the way, just happens to be a favourite saying of mine).  I coloured her as pale as I could... to match these gorgeous Maja Design Spring Basics papers.  Now there isn't much more to say, as I kept the card quite simple... the stripey paper is on the reverse of the floral one... I used a Spellbinders Nestie Oval for her shape...  and then finished with some seam binding, some glitter, and a gemstone on the bow.  I didn't use a sentiment this time, as I find that a lot of people want a card without.... and I can always add a personalised sentiment if it's required.

Hope you like my delicate (if glittery!) fairy...

Big hugs

  20. Perfect ♥

    I adore the delicate shade of blue (MY favourite colour!) and the papers are divine.
    This is just the sweetest and prettiest fairy ever and she deserves an extra sprinkle of glitter.

  21. Hmmm, do I like your fairy...? Nope, I LOVE her! Absolutely gorgeous colouring, just the perfect amount of sparkle and the soft shading round the image is quite frankly stunning - must try this some time as it looks so good :-)
    And yes, what is going on with us and all these non-pink cards?! Pink will always be my fave but there are so many other gorgeous DPs out there that just beg to be used, and Maja DP is certainly one of those!

    Big hugs, Kat xx
