A Gem of a Challenge - fairies

I'm a bit late with this one - our new challenge started at A Gem of a Challenge yesterday, and this time we have a 'fairies' theme chosen by Lisa.


I've cheated a bit, and used the pre-coloured version of this cute little Fairy Teddy - very handy for when you're in a rush or don't feel like colouring, but it also comes with a normal outline version so you can colour it yourself too.  I just added a bit of sparkle on the yellow bits, but they're not really showing up in the photo.

The papers are Pink Petticoat, sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon is from my stash.  I don't seem to be able to make a card at the moment without using kraft card!  I must try and resist on my next card...

I used yet another sketch from the free choice challenge at Sketch n Stash - they'll be banning me from joining in soon!


I noticed this morning that I've gone over 700 followers - wow, how fab is that?!  Huge thanks to everyone who chooses to follow me, I really do appreciate it, and I'll be putting a little candy on here in the next few days to say thank you.  Morgan STILL isn't back - they've been delayed a bit by the snow, but he's on his way so could be back any minute :o)
