LOTV - Little Fairy

Evening all! I hope you are all doing well......... Today I have been working on my DT work for Heartfelt Creations, but Mr Mojo is really not playing the game this last few day:( I have however made a scrapbook layout.... ( you will get to peek at this next week) not really sure about it but hey we are all a loud our off days, aren't we!
So anyway I decided today that I would have a little clear out in my craft room........ isn't it surprising how much we hoard, even when we know we will probably never use it:(  I have this terrible habit of keeping every single scrap of paper left over from my projects and end up with boxes and drawers of little bit's of paper that I will probably never use.... so now ALLL GONE!. I now have a clean and tidy craft room!
So anyway today I would like to share with you a little card I made a few days ago........ I was going for a clean and elegant look..... but me being me had to add a few more flowers and pearls, oh and lace....... and then a bow! but thats me I suppose, however I am quite pleased with the way it turned out, I hope you like it too:)

  • The base card is 5"x7" and is made using Spellbinder die - Enchanted Labels 28 as is the tag.
  • The sentiment I think came with a freebie set from a magazine many moons ago.
  • The image is a fairy from LOTV sketch pad set 6 - Fairies and I have coloured her in using copics.
  • Papers - Nitwits Collection: Country Lady
  • Other Spellbinder dies that I used  - Labels 28, A2 matting Basics B
  • Flowers - The Hobby House
  • Lace, pearls and ribbon - my stash
  • The diamante star  - Mei Flower
If you would like to know how to make a base card from this type of die then Becca over at
Amazing Paper Grace has a wonderful video tutorial ........ her cards and projects are absolutely adorable!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
