Good Morning,

A bit of a wet one here in Northampton. I hope it dries up as I have a stall at a fun day on Monday.

My card to day is a shaped card using The Polka Doodles fairy from the Paper Boutique vol 2 CD. My Daughter, who is a whizz with the silhouette gave me a little help. She took the template over to the silhouette to be cut out (this can be done by hand). It was cut out using different papers for the layers of the dress that were printed from a Do Crafts CD (woodland friends I think). The hair,  face, arms & legs were cut out on white card and was then coloured in with pro markers. The wings have been glittered with glamour dust and the crown has been cut out of silver mirri card and been embellished with gems.

I used the same paper I used for the fairy's dress and embossed paper on the easel card before adding the fairy. The sentiment was computer generated and an organza ribbon & bow has been added for that finishing touch. I think any little girl would love this card, what do you think?
