Fairies


This week Bloggers Challenge is a sketch challenge. The challenge at Critter Sketch is fairies and the challenge at Kraft Journal is use your stash. My card works with all three challenges. I followed the sketch, used lots of fairy images, and pulled out items from my stash that I hadn't used in ages.
The base cardstock is Kraft. I just love the background paper. It is from Graphics45 Once Upon a Springtime.  I've been saving it for way too long. This was the perfect card to get me to use some. Both stamped fairy images have been in my stash for years. Again, it was the perfect time to pull them out and use them. I used glossy accents on the focal image for emphasis. The paper lace was the perfect touch to the center of the card. Do I have to say that I've been hoarding it forever.
