Fairy pretty

Hello lovely people,

I was working at the weekend and then had yesterday off, which was spent mostly reading my book and colouring - so relaxing!

Now, this usually leaves me with absolutely no idea what day of the week it is but I did manage to remember that it is Tuesday and therefore time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday!

We have a lovely theme for you this time...


We also have a lovely sponsor for you; it's the fabulous Bunny Zoe's Crafts with a £10 voucher

As you can probably tell this card is for my niece and I just hope she isn't upset that it isn't Frozen themed!

I went all out on the pretty girly colours and details though :-)

Can you believe that I hadn't actually inked up this cutie yet?

I decided to add a little shading around the image here but it is pretty subtle so not sure you can see it too well, but it does help to 'anchor' the image a little bit.

As usual I threw a load of flowers at the card to see what stuck and I especially love the little rosebuds - so cute :-)

I also dug out the Frantage as the corners looked a wee bit bare but I didn't want to add any more embellishments.

Challenges I am playing along with;
1.  Bunny Zoe's Crafts (for the girls)
2.  As You Like It (CAS or fussy - I do like both styles but my faves are definitely the fancy ones because I love lots of layers of DP and adding pretty flowers)
3.  Winter Wonderland (for a child)
4.  Sweet Stampin' (inspired by a song - Twinkle twinkle little star!)
