Fairy garden

Hi guys,

Just catching up after my week away in Sweden! I decided to make myself a new card/postcard to be precise. I had printed the postcards out before I went away, as I needed to use one for my DT creation for while I was away. They are a vintage style postcard design of flowers, and so I thought this one would work really well with my fairy die-cuts.

I used the one with a purple background, as I feel this is more suited for a fairy theme, and the flowers are down the side, so she looks like she has just exited from among them and is looking towards the stamp area.

Products used:

Digital image - Vintage cardmaking CD-Rom received as a gift from my mum
Dies - Fairy die set that came free with a magazine (unable to remember which one)
Card - black/maroon double sided from scrap box

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

intaas #65 Flowers
CMM #239 It's a bugs life
TIOT - In my garden there is...a fairy living among the flowers and calling in the dragonflies.
AYLI - Fav colour combo - I really like using black and purple together as they are such rich tones

Thanks for looking - now to go and sort some stuff in the garden, and get the next load of washing in the machine :)
