Fairy garden

Morning everyone.
Todays card has been created for my Mother-in-laws birthday.
It is the completed card from Wednesdays desk post :)
I distressed and matted 3 layers added satin ribbon and lace to the side.
Die cut, stamped, coloured and glittered the main image.
Lastly I created a pretty ( I think) little corsage with paper, ribbon flowers,
feathers, metal spirals and lots of glitter.

Items used...
Papers by Forever friends called Forever Love.
Stamp used is from a fairy set that came free with Cardmaking and papercraft.
Coloured with Promarkers Cocoa, Forestgreen, pear green and Sky blue
for recolouring the pearl butterfly.
All 3 diecuts are from Spellbinders.
The largest one os S4-464 Labels 39 Decorative elements.
The smaller label and leaf spray I am unsure of the names
as they were bought second hand and came unpackaged.
Lots of blue ink for distressing and edging.

I am entering this into .....

As you like it - Favourite colour - I just adore blue. For many it can be a sad colour but for me it means winter, snow, Ice and best of all it means Christmas is around the corner. Christmas is my favourite holiday and always brings back many many happy memories of my Grandparents that and Blue is the main colour of my newest favourite Disney film, Frozen of course. :)
