Flowers and Fairies!

Hello, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas - now we are heading for New Year!



Quite a clean and simple card from me today.  The main image is from a fantastic clear stamp set from Penny Black called Botanical Garden - I actually bought it with a gift token I won from a previous Penny Black challenge, thank you Penny Black!  The fairies are from Inkylicious and the sentiment is from a clear set called Hope Blooms from Stamplorations.  All the stamping is done in black Versafine and I embossed just the flowers with detail clear powder.  The flowers are coloured with a couple of different purple Promarkers then I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on them and the fairy wings.  The little stones are from my stash.

This is a quick post as I am a bit near the finish line for one of the challenges I want to enter!

I would like to enter the following:

Butterfly Challenges - all kinds of Fairies, Gnomes, Elves and Pixies.   I only just made it in time!
Penny Black and More - Black and White Plus One.
Stamping Sensations - Floral Fancies.

These are all awesome challenges - you need to have a look!

Thank you so much for visiting me!  Take care and have a wonderful week. Christine xxx

love the fairies on the card...you know purple is a favorite color of mine! I haven't done as much as I would like too with the fibro and ME flaring up after the trips. I flew to CA for a week over Christmas and have been in bed most of the time since I got back Saturday. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my posts. I sit in bed and type on my laptop...whatever it takes to stay connected! Happy New Year! Vickie
