The Sweetest Baby Fairy Butterfly

Hello to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.  A warm welcome to all of my new followers.  So pleased you have decided to join me.

My mojo had well and truly departed and I was getting a bit concerned. 
 I bought this so sweet image  Baby Fairy Butterfly  by Mo Manning and voila, mojo returned, thank goodness.


This really is the cutest of images and a delight to colour. 
 I had all of my pens and pencils out and have used a colour palette which is quite different for me. 
 I tried to create a little fairy dell for this sweetie.



List of materials used to make this card.

Centura Pearl Card stock of easel card base.
Neenah Solar White for image, cut using Spellbinder oval die.
Papers are from my stash.
Wonderful organza ribbon with jewel embellishment.
Die cut label and other decoration cut from my DP's.
Crafter's Companion Roses Quilling Dies.
Crafter's Companion Holly and Ivy dies which have been dry embossed using Petite Dots Folder - Embossalicious and the wet embossed using Distress Inks.
The paper edges have all been distressed using my scissors and then with Inks.
So much fun.



I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:


Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my project.

Sending hugs to all,

Laine said...

Hi Astrid, thank you for your visit. Concerning lack of Mojo, this is a term I have seen widely used in crafting circles to describe lack of focus, motivation, ceativity. Hope this helps.
