Flower fairy

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme this month is...


 So we want to see all those beautiful floral PINK of course!

Apologies for the wonkiest photo ever, it was just one of those days!  I have crammed in the flowers though, on the image, the DP and some lovely 3D flowers too :-)
I have had some hessian ribbon for a little while now and decided it was time to use it, and I do love it teamed with the seam binding and twine - both rustic and pretty.

I have just started the skin and hair colouring class at Kit and Clowder and whilst I have a long way to go I feel I have made some improvements the hair on this little lady...what do you reckon?
This is just one of the many gorgeous new fairy stamps at LOTV; I could so have bought them all but had to resist!
