Polaroid fairy

Hello lovely people,

Sorry for the delay while I was poorly and thank you for your get well wishes.  I'm not feeling better yet but have finally got to the bottom of what was wrong with me and started antibiotics so am hoping to feel better soon.

Since this post was almost ready to go I thought I'd quickly finish it off and will be back with the other 2 belated DT posts tomorrow.

First up, it's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme this month is...


So, we would like to see some butterflies on your creation.  They don't have to be the focal point as you can see on my card...

Here's a closer look at the cute fairy and yes, that cloudy background is a first for me.  I did it with chalk following a super tutorial from Netty which you can find here.
I cut the inner shape of the polaroid frame using my Cricut and then trimmed the outer shape with my guillotine.
