Fairy in the woods

Hello there,

It's time for a new challenge over at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge blog which starts today. As usual it last for about a month so I do hope that you'll join us.

The theme as always is Fantasy, however as long as it's Fantasy pretty much anything goes. If you're not sure what we mean by that just check out the guidance in the side bar on the blog. 

This month I've gone with a fairy theme and used a kit which came with an issue of Papercraft Essentials. I'm not sure who I'll give it to so I've not added a sentiment yet. I edged the mats with double sided tape and added the glitter, I'd not tried this before and probably won't again as I got glitter everywhere!

Card recipe

8 x 8 white card blank
Papercraft Essentials Issue 198 Fairy Kit

Blue ribbon from my stash

I hope you like the card I've made, please leave a comment to let me know what you think if you've got time. I do like to read them all.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Please also join us over at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month, we'd love to see you.
