a fairy is near...

Today's card is one that I did for Caardvarks Good Knight FANTASY challenge. I also combined it with this weeks sketch from 2Sketches4You. To create the fairy, I used a fairy dingbat as a template to cut out the body and glued a set of handcut wings to her. The butterfly was created by stamping one of the Molly Stamps Wings on Things (small) wings, folding the cardstock and cutting two wings out. The stamped part is on the underside since it was just used as a outline to cut out. The mushroom was simply a design I sketched out and stitched.




supplies used:
stamps: Molly Stamps Wings on Things small
pattern paper: Melissa Frances
other: fairy dingbat (Dafont.com), Plantin Cricut
