Flower Fairies

Back with another card using an image from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.  I thought this fairy was so sweet, and I loved how the papers that came with it matched with the artwork so well.  I just happened to have some polka dot ribbon that worked great with it too.

I am sharing my card today with The house that stamps built blog things with wings challenge, you don't have to use their stamps, I am hoping mine is ok this is not a stamp but clipart image.

They predicted cold for this winter and so far it is happening, we have had such mild weather the last few winters that this is just crazy, our normal for this time of year is 40 so these teens and below are strange.

Hope you are staying warm wherever you are.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and letting me know you have :)

Very pretty. You do make such good use of these magazine images and papers.

It is snowy and windy here today, making travel treacherous. We are all staying home! Have a good day.

Your card is so pretty Connie, I love the colours.
When I saw it, it immediately took me back to my childhood when I loved reading my Cicely Mary Barker
fairy books :-).....thank you!

A gorgeous image and paper, Connie! The ribbon is, indeed, a perfect match. Sometimes it looks perfect to the eye, but the camera tells differently, but this really worked out. Love it!
