Best Wishes, by way of fairy

This card too FOREVER to make, but I got it done! It was really frustrating too because I had planned to do ribbon flowers following the Lili of the Valley sketch, but then the ribbon flowers were too big. Then I did these circle flowers and even these were too big! Soooo, I had to deviate A LOT from the sketch. Hope it still counts! If not, that's okay. I didn't have any fairy stamps so I turned to the good old list of free coloring pages that I compiled here. I found this from the Activity Village; you can use their images for personal or educational purposes. All credit goes to them for the fairy graphic.

This card is for a few challenges:
  1. Lili of the Valley - for Challenge #28 a Template Challenge - Sorry! The sketch was my original inspiration, but because I didn't plan enough and didn't have enough space to put my circle flowers and image, I had to rearrange things the circles and put them at the top. If it doesn't qualify for the sketch, that's okay. I'll try again next week :)
  2. Cupcake Craft Challenge - for Challenge #42 Fairies
  3. Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - for Challenge #34 Pink, turquoise, and a hint of brown.

This is beautiful and it works! FYI... Squigglefly has some lovely digital fairy images at a very, very reasonable price. Hope you don't mind my telling you this.
