Butterfly Fairy

Hi everyone!

Just a quick post to share a card I made for fun!  I hardly ever get to do that anymore so I'm happy about this one :)  Not to say that this one is anything to cheer about, but I do really like how tender the flower turned out on Crissy's beautiful Fairy Daydreams (available at Whimsy).  I just love this image!  I'm doing the no-lines thing again, which I thought had a lovely effect with this soft and tender fairy.  Too bad I colored the stem so brightly, but oh well, one can always improve!  The background is a Make It Crafty Tulip Garden digi, which is greedily snagged during Zoe's sale.  I couldn't pass up such a great deal!  Nowadays my images feel so empty and "floaty" when I don't have a background.  The little postmark is from the Whimsy Stamps Birthday Postage Stamp Sentiments and the butterflies are from the newly release Whimsy Elegant Butterflies Dies set.

Hope your week is off to a good start! Thanks for stopping by!
