A round easel card!



Here's another larger-than-usual card, I used a saucer as a template. I think this LotV fairy is my favourite - she was the first one I bought - though I love all LotV's stamps! I've been very firm with myself about buying crafty stuff, because I'm saving up for Stamperama in Stevenage in February, so I've been resisting the gorgeous new stamps. It's very hard!

The current Lili of the Valley Challenge is for 'things with wings'. I coloured her with Promarkers and stickled her wings and the flowers in her hair. I used 2 Nesties, the background one was a Christmas pressie from my dear hubby, and so was the Martha S butterfly border. Ribbon is from Hobbycraft, flowers are Prima, Wild Orchid and from stash, and the gem brads and pink gingham paper are also from stash.




Here's an interior view. The sentiment is by The Greeting Farm.

The colours irl are pink and green, but they've come out more coral and aqua. It's so frustrating having photograph things by artificial light!

I'm also entering this into Stamptacular Sunday Challenge which this week is 'Anything but a Square.'

And I'm entering it into The Ribbon Girl Challenge which is a colour challenge of pink and green. I love pink and green, it's such a lovely, girly combination!

Phew, this was a bit of a marathon (and I had to stop halfway through to feed the family!)

Thanks for looking, and have a good week.

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Vanilla, Honeycomb; Blossom, Pink Carnation; Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink; Mint Green, Pear Green
