Whimsical Fairy


I have to say a huge thank you to the Fussy and Fancy Girls who asked me to be one of the Guest Designers for the month of March.

The Challenge this fortnight is:


(colour or recycle)

Sweet Pea Stamps are the sponsors for this challenge. I have to admit I hadn’t heard of them before but when I popped over to see their products I was just amazed… the images are gorgeous.

I chose recycle because I was given these delicious pieces of scrap material (they were going to be thrown away) so I have recycled them onto my card.

Stamped the fairy onto a piece of sheer fabric and cut it out with one of the new dies I bought when home in the UK. Frayed the edges of the material and then tied all the bits into a bundle (we crafters like to save everything and recycle).

Stitched all the material and the ribbon onto the card… no paper whatsoever.

You will find the Fussy and Fancy Design Team creations all here so pop over, and if you want to, please leave some lovely comments.

Entering for:

A Spoon Full of Sugar – Recycle – Challenge #94

Crafty Cardmakers – A Feminine Celebration – Challenge #16

Secret Crafter – Anything Goes – Challenge #74
