'The Great Outdoors'

Good morning

It's the first Friday of the month again (I can't believe how fast this year is going) and that means a new challenge as been set at Crafty Calendar Challenge.  This month the challenge is 'The Great Outdoors' - so we would like you to make a card/project that represents 'The Great Outdoors' - it could be to do with outdoor activities, animals and insects or just outdoor colours - added option of insects.

I decided to use this sweet LOTV fairy as I can imagine her living at the bottom of my garden, smelling the flowers and chasing the butterflies.  How lovely would that be! 



Image ~ LOTV 'On Tiptoe'
Papers ~ Wild Rose Studio
Flowers ~ Prima roses, Prima hydrangea and WOC Cherry blossom
Butterflies ~ Martha Stewart punch
Sentiment ~ Stamp I bought in a set from Tesco
Ribbon ~ Stash
Pearls ~ Prima and Jewelry Seal
Leaves ~ Ebay
