Thistledown Fairy

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for all your kind wishes about my Dad, I really appreciate them. He is starting to improve slowly, and the nurses are optimistic that he will get the use of his arm back. He is still in hospital and will stay there as long as he continues to improve. The nurses there are absolutely fantastic!

Now, onto today's card. This rubber stamp is Thistledown Fairy from LOTV. It's one of their older stamps but it's new to me and I love it!! (My new ones haven't arrived yet - bank holiday post!)



I've coloured her with promarkers and added some glitter on her fairy wings.


The background papers are from Nitwits. I've used my spellbinders edgeability die for the border.

I've added some of the gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. They are white sweetheart blossom flowers, 15mm floral foundation roses and a 25mm open rose. I finished it off with ribbon from my stash and a bow that took loads of attempts to tie!! I covered the badly tied bow with a heart shaped button.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges
Lillies Little Fairies - Ribbon, Buttons and Bows
Wild Orchid Crafts - Things with Wings
Sir Stampalot - Happy Birthday

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Happy Easter everyone.

Gorgeous! :) I love some of these 'vintage' LOTV stamps. I just bought myself a couple too.

Love how you use the edgeability dies and the contrast of colour, it has such an impact.

Beautiful colouring!
