Good evening
Hope you're all enjoying the weekend and the lovely weather we're having in the UK!
I made this card for a challenge recently but didn't use it so I am posting it today and entering it into a couple of challenges.
The stamp (Bella panel by Stamptivity) reminds me of when I was a little girl and when the dandelions had gone to seed we would pick them and blow the little feather like seeds which we called 'fairies' and would make a wish. Oh to be young again!
For the background I used a free download from years ago that I found on my computer and changed the colours to pink and green. The black butterflies are a mixture of vellum and acetate punched with my MS butterfly punch and coloured with a black promarker and pink pearls added. I inked around my stamped image with a pink versamagic chalk ink and matted on to white card which has been cuttled with CB folder Jules Jewells and inked with pale green chalk ink. I added some black organza ribbons some paper roses which are again inked with pink and Prima pink pearl swirls. The sentiment is computer generated font is 'Santa's Sleigh'
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Sir Stampalot Challenge 'Fantasy'
By The Cute And Girly 'Fairy Tales'
Thanks for visiting
Be back soon!

Oh Julie, it is Gorgeous! You are so right, it does remind me of when I was a little girl, and we would blow the dandylions also. So funny, now when we think back on those days. I just love the soft little touchs that you added, darling little flowers, just the perfect accents. Good luck on the challengestoo, missed you yesterday!

Chat soon,

Hugz, xx
