Magical Beings



It is my turn this week to choose the theme at Oldie But A Goodie, and I have chosen a Fantasy theme, you can use Fairies, Mermaids, dragons or any other Magical beings. It's my favourite theme and I adore fairies so I was able to get one of my favourites out, It's a crafty individuals and is so beautiful with lovely detail too. This is the prize I have put up for this challenge:-



This was also a sad card to make as it is for my Mum to give to her friend, who recently got the news she has cancer and it is too far advanced to be treated. My Mum asked me to make her a card that would make her smile, but with only a friend sentiment on it. My Mum is pleased with the result and is taking it up to the hospital today for her.


This is also for the following challenges:-
1. Simon Says Stamp - Bingo - I chose Lace, flowers, and heat embossing(my image was stamped with versafine and then embossed with clear embossing folder)
2. Crafts & Me - challenge # 22 - Monochrome (Pinks)
3. Magical Mondays - challenge 14 - Flowers


Recipe:-
Stamps - Crafty Individuals CI-137, Polkadoodles butterfly, Dovecraft sentiments,
Papers - Polkadoodles, Papermanis Henbury Lane,
Colouring Mediums - Distress inks, Big 'n' Juicy,
Tools - Embossing Powder, embossing leaf punch,
Embellishments - Lace, flowers, gems, Magnolia stems, ribbon, stickles,


Have a good week and thank you for stopping by my blog.
Happy crafting
