A Fairy For My Mother

The inside of my easel card.

There's a great theme over at Die Cut Dreams today, it is "Mother's Day or Special Friend". The team have all done gorgeous creations and there's always fab prizes up for the winner. The Prize is:-
3 Chipboard door hanger kits, Colours may vary. These can also be found at Die Cut Dreams to buy, I use them and they are fabulous.

I chose to do an Easel Card, and as my Mum loves Fairies I thought this gorgeous Sweet Pea stamp would be ideal. It was a Christmas present from my Friend Brenda, thank you she's beautiful.
