Setting the Record Straight!

It's a common misconception that fairies are all slim & pretty. Mo Manning has proved otherwise with her images of fairies who are, shall we say, a little overweight. I'm not sure how this one gets off the ground, but she's nonetheless graceful in flight!

I based the card on the fab sketch at Sketch & Stash this week. I'll definitely use this again. My new stash is the Mo Manning stamp, & I've used Basic Grey Wisteria DPs I've had for some time now, but I never get tired of them.

There are quite a few other challenges out there this would fit in with. However, I've probably missed the deadline for Quixotic Paperie where the challenge is to use a butterfly on your card. Passion 4 Promarkers want to see cards with 'all creatures great & small'. The butterfly fits this category, but it also got me thinking. Is a fairy a creature or a person? Discuss!! Finally at Cute Card Thursday they want you to use flowers on your cards, easy!!
Well I hope everyone is having a good week. Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Oh, oh pick me, I know the answer!!!!! Fairy's are FLOWERS. If you read the book called Wings you would see it is all explained to you. Cute book!!!
Anyhow, this is a gorgeous card my friend! Love, love those pretty flowers and pretty papers. I'm in a love of purple phase right now and can't find purple paper anywhere! This fairy is quite graceful. Beautiful card Andie!
Hugs, Dena
