Oh So Girlie!

Good morning! Having broken in to my first gorgeous Nitwits paper pad from LotV on Monday night I got me on a roll, and  I decided that I just had to make something featuring the other pad I had got - the "Bonnets and Bowties" collection. Looking around I saw that this week's Lili's Little Fairies challenge is Oh So Girlie and the Wild Orchid Challenge is Summer flowers: given that this paper pad is bursting with summery blooms I only needed to decide which girlie LotV image to ink up and I was away!!

I often come back to this darling little fairy ... I think it is because I really adore dandelion clocks!I coloured her dress a bit more brightly than I would normally to tie in with the papers, but I think I like it!!  I was also feeling pretty chuffed this evening as I had a broken Leone Em leaf punch in my craft tote ... I had been meaning to ask my husband for months whether he could fix it, and tonight I finally got round to it and it was fixed within two minutes - yay!

Stamps: LotV "Dandelion Clock"; sentiment by Dimension Fourth;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: LotV "Ntiwits - Bonnets and Bowties";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; gems from The Hobby House & Papermania; wooden butterfly shapes and ribbon from my stash;
Tools: small, large and lacy circle nestabilities; Martha Stewart "eyelet lace" edge punch; Leone Em "Ash Branch" leaf punch.

  4. What a gorgeous card, Pauline. That paper is yummy-scrummy and would be a joy to match colours (which you have done perfectly). I agree, that little fairy is soooo cute.

    Glad your DH was able to fix your punch. I too have that one (bought it at Ally Pally, Sept. 2010) and it is VERY temperamental as to which papers it will punch. Such a shame as it looks so beautiful on your card.
