Fairy…

Hi everyone,

I have a new favourite stamp range…Lavinia stamps ‘fairies’, I saw a Tonic demo on create and craft last week and Jodie used a Lavinia stamp fairy, so I popped on their website and now I’m hooked. I ordered some fairies and the background scenes , the fairy used on my card is called ‘moon fairy’, I am looking forward to visiting their stand at the NEC . Also used Spellbinders grand squares, Spellbinders d-lites corner flourish. flowers from my local warehouse country baskets. Embossing folder is dainty dots. The card looks better in ‘real life’ as Ive also glittered the fairy wings.
