Garden Fairy

 Flowers are the harbinger of spring.


This is a new image from Delightful Inspiration. Faith makes some awesome images and this fairy is the proof.
I just love to make easel cards. this 'garden fairy' was so big and I needed to add some flowers....duh, and an easel gave me just a bit more real estate to do that. There are water drops on two of the flowers and of course the water from the can. Get a close up. This darling easel card was the inspiration of one of my SBS sistahs, Susan, who has challenged us to make a spring card using pink, green and yellow.
I paper pieced her wings and dress, added some stickles, a gem in the flower, and plenty of rick rack. This card is 5 1/2" by 3" with some extra fractions hanging over with the sun and leaves, so it will fit in an A2 envie.
Thanks for coming by!
Leave a little sugar, I'd love to hear your comments.
