Thank you for all the prayers for my family and my brother, we so greatly appreciate your love and concern. My brother will be leaving in-house rehab soon and entering outpatient rehab. The people of Houston are absolutely amazing, generous, wonderful and just downright hospitable. I was there for a week while my brother was in ICU and do not have the words to express how grateful I am for all the staff at Ben Taub Trama Center for the care they gave my brother; they saved his life, to which I am eternally grateful. I lost my older brother in an automobile accident and could not bear to think I would lose my “baby” brother (seven years younger than me). God is so good and gracious in his loving Grace! As soon as I returned from Houston, my sons flew in from Nashville. We spent a week at the beach relaxing before they headed back to school.
Today I have a sweet shabby fairy card to share, Spellbinders’ Cierra fairy. I used four Spellbinders Die D-Lites on this card, the fairies, the locket and the Create-a-Rose dies (large soft pink rose). I used the wet petal technique (as used in my Dahlia tutorials) and mulberry paper (now in stock).
I made two sets of wings for the fairy and layered them with fairy dust (glitter).
The locket has a cameo inside, it’s the Ariana fairy (I removed her wings). Prima flowers worked perfect on the card, I tucked a few pink rose buds inside the locket, together with a touch of baby’s breath.
Kaiser pearls were adhered to the locket, as well as to the card. I distressed the edges, added some pretty seam binding and I especially love the Petal Pins – Iced Prima pin tucked under the large pink rose (Create A Rose).
This would make a sweet card for a little girl’s birthday. The back could be removed and the card framed to hang in her bedroom, the size is approximately 5″ x 6″. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit today. I wish you a wonderful weekend!
