Fairies and Butterflies

 Hello, and welcome!

Well, I did it my days mixed up and thought yesterday was Tuesday, which means I didn't get my post up for this week's challenge at Perfect Sentiments .....aarrrggghhh!
Would you believe that I have to take my dear old Mam to the Memory Clinic?  As the song says, "It Should Have Been Me!"....ha!

Without further ado.....other than to say we have a forecast for SNOW......(sorry, couldn't resist)'s the details for the challenge .....

PSC71: Fairies or Butterflies
Create a card for the occasion of your choice using either a Fairy or Butterfly in your design. Using patterned paper or ribbon that includes fairies or butterflies does not count. Don't forget to include the sentiment on the front of your card

Fairies and butterflies are happy little creatures, aren't they?  I think I must have smiled all  the time I was creating this sweet little card, lol......

I used Fairy Bella from Patti's store.....she reminds me of Disney's Tinkerbell.....and I started with a white card base  and used a piece of this pretty pink paper (K&Co.) for the background.....
She's coloured up with Promarkers with a touch of sparkly Mod Podge on her wings and on the starfall......the label is cut with a Joy Crafts die..........

I cut the fluttery flutterbys with a Woodware punch from blue and pink card stock, then cut three more from the same white flocked netting that you can see in the background.......pretty!

Another strip of flocked netting along the bottom and a freebie sentiment, raised on foam, and two little flower gems......

My new Cheery Lynn corner die....cute!  The flowers are from Prima and I added a pink brad to the centre....

A little titivating inside and we're done!

Why not feast your eyes on the wonderful inspiration you'll find at Perfect Sentiments, then make a lovely card that includes a fairy or a butterfly,  or both!
