Beary good wishes :)

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Let’s Play Dress Up.We have the fabulous Stamp Fairy as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

For my card I’ve used the super cute Toby SpringFairy by Stamp Fairy and coloured him with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.For an extra special touch I’ve paper pieced his dress and,of course,added some Glamour Dust.Ain’t he pretty?!I decided to create a card with a little white space for a change.I dug out these papers from my stash as I thought the colours would give a fresh,Springlike feel.I used one of my favourite but seldom used punches on the purple layer of card and decorated the centre of each flower with a gem.I layered up 3 different types of ribbon and topped then with a bow.The sentiment has been stamped directly on to the card base and more Glamour Dust has been applied to the stars at either end of the words.

    I love every little detail on this card. Toby is so sweet with the paper piecing and lovely wings. The colours you have chosen for the card are fresh and cheerful. Beautiful contrast in the scalloped mats behind him. The border is gorgeous and the bling detail makes it even sweeter. Wowee!

    This is so cute. I love how you have just enough shimmer. Love the colors and the round shapes. It really softens the whole look.

    Aw, “he” is adorable! I love the glittered wings, they add such a nice touch and it’s those little things that add up to an unforgettable card! The paper pieced dress is great and I just love the colors you’ve used as well as the coloring technique you’ve done for his fur and even the highlight on his nose! The cutest little beary good wishes bearer (sorry, couldn’t help it) that I’ve seen in a long time. You gave your style WINGS and it is wonderful, thank you so much for playing with us at Opus Gluei, I love to see the creativity our themes inspire!
