Happy Birthday - Fairy - Paper Tole

Morning everyone, it's actually overcast and showery today which is really nice for the gardens as they are a little thirsty.  Plus means that I will just have to stay inside and craft. ;-)

Today I have birthday card I made for another friend over at Craftmad.
I started with a white base card and added this lovely paisley design paper that I received from the lovely Gail.  I layered up purple and white card stock....and pin pricked a design around the edge.   Added this cute little paper tole fairy that I received in a magazine giveaway.  Found this little dragonfly punched from paper in my collection.   Also a lovely dragonfly charm which I attached with embroidery floss.
Finished with the silver Happy Birthday sticker from Sticker Store.

The Craftmad Create and Chat night is on again this Friday night starting at 7pm Queensland time.

  9. Hello Merry

    Thought it was time I visited as you are so kind popping over to me even though I can't visit as often as I would like.

    I love lilac and green togehter, such a perfect match and this card is just lovely.

    We could do with a little rain here as well, the gardned are needy and the hay crop looks to be heading to an expensive winter.

    Hope all is well with you.
