At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Do You Believe in Fairies?We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies and The Paper Shelter as our sponsors 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 totally sweet Cherry Fairy by A Day For Daisies and coloured her with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers,adding some gloss to the cherries.The pretty papers were a freebie from Papercraft Inspirations magazine.After adhering  them to the kraft base I hand stitched  along the seams and wrapped some lace around both the  top and bottom edges.The sentiment was stamped onto some self adhesive fabric paper.I love the translucency it gives allowing a glimpse of the papers beneath.I layered up a paper flower,a jute twine threaded chipboard button and a couple of pearl topped pins to create the embellishment in the corner.

    Hey Lisa – I’ve told you how much I like your card – In addition to your coloring and the shiny cherries, I especially like the use of the lace and sentiment banner on vellum. Makes for very interesting elements in your card. Thanks for sharing your project in the “Any Sentiment” Challenge at Aud Sentiments.

    Exceptional colouring on this adorable image, Lisa. I love the gloss on the cherries and how they contrast with the fairy’s soft colours. Love the trims and the mix of papers. The pins make me smile 🙂 Very sweet card.
