Sorry folks, it's another fairy!

Hello lovely people...

...and big hugs and thank you to the people who have chosen to follow me here on my new blog - so lovely to have you along :-)

I have had a busy weekend starting with a lovely catch up with some family on Saturday and having fun playing with my niece and nephew.  Then I had a day of housework and crafting on Sunday.  Oh, and Dr Hubby helped me put together 2 drawer units ready for my craft room reorganisation.  I got all the bits and pieces that I wanted from Ikea on Wednesday but probably won't have time to put it all in place until the bank holiday weekend.  Something to look forward to :-)

After all that waffle I do have an actual card to show you using this Deconstructed Sketch for inspiration;
I only fiddled with the sketch a weeny bit and here it is;
I used the 'out of the box' technique to cut the image out with a circle nestie whilst leaving the wings hanging off the top and layered it onto a scallop circle cut with my Cricut.  The seam binding ruffle was created with the help of lots of tiny bits of double sided tape!
I have had this stamp for a while but somehow never got round to using it until now.  I have coloured the image with Copics, twice in fact because I got ink on the background the first time round  :-(
Card recipe; 
Image: Kraftin' Kimmie - Fairy Lilybelle
DP: Maja Designs Vintage Spring Basics (yes, again but they are so pretty!)
Seam binding: from Crafty Ribbons
Lace: from The Ribbon Girl (Rebecca lace)
Sentiment: Personal Impressions Big Sentiments
Pearls: Kaisercraft

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  In the Pink (ribbons and ruffles)
2.  ABC (lovely lace)
3.  By the Cute and Girly (vintage)
4.  Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)
5.  The Deconstructed Sketch (#99)

Thanks for visiting,
Kat xx
