Is this a record?

I began this card back in January! Then I put the image and papers away 'in a safe place' which is always fatal! I only found them yesterday, so this card has taken me 3 months to make!!!!! Should I phone the Guinness Book Of Records?!

Wot a plonker!

The image is Silver Fairy from Whimsy Stamps - I love her wings, they cry out for lots of lovely glitter! The papers are from Funky Hand I think. Flowers, lace and the gold corner are from stash.

I adapted one of the sketches on Dawny P's blog, she has several and they are all nice and straightforward.

I'm entering the challenge at Flutter By Wednesdays which this time is 'open' - ie anything goes as long as there's a fairy, butterfly or angel.

I'm also entering the Sweet Stampin' Challenge where there is also an 'anything goes' theme.

Also I'm entering the Paper Sundaes challenge which is 'Spring Blossoms'. There are flowers in the fairy's hair, as well as on the card! (Thanks for the heads-up, Kathleen!)

I hope you're all having a relaxing weekend with lots of spring sunshine! Thanks for looking.

love Mags B x
