Purple Fairy Birthday

Good morning everyone.  It's  a pretty cold day today!  Its my fella Col's birthday today.  I gave him two handmade cards - one from me and one from Brandon:0)  I put money in his card so he could get some trainers.
I love this fairy stamp (she is a Whimsy stamp called Silver Fairy) and have used her quite a bit.  She is coloured in with pro-markers.  The backing papers are Memory Box Viola and the stamped sentiment is Dovecraft.  The flourishes are made with dies and the flowers and brad are from my stash.  Oh and I have used Bazil black and purple card for matting and layering.
Thank you for looking (apologies for my blurry second image) - I appreciate it :0) Michelle

  7. While I was over at Tuesday Alchemy scanning through the list, I saw this absolutely gorgeous purple thumbnail and just had to come by and take a closer look. And hey it's you! Long time no 'see'. Your card is absolutely stunning Michelle. Everything about it is gorgeous. The papers, the image, the embellishments all compliment each other so well. I especially love the way her wings sit over top everything else. And those swirls...just the perfect addition. Fantastic job. Glad I saw it and happy I had a chance to come over and say hi.
