New Beginnings



This week, our challenge theme at Fairy Fun Friday is New Beginnings, something that is on everyone's mind as we head into a fresh new year.  This card really challenge me.  I couldn't find a vintage style image that I wanted to use for this challenge so I went with a different style.  I guess it's good to pull me out of my vintagy rut once in awhile!  I used A Mother's Love digital image from The Prairie Fairy for the polar bears and a freebie sentiment I picked up from Rainbow Echo Designs from her Sentimental Sunday's challenge blog.  (The digital sentiment came with butterflies but I erased them with my Photoshop Elements).  The yummy designer paper was also a digital freebie from Barely Mine

Other supplies used include a Cuttlebug die and snowflake embossing folder for the heart, Crystal Effects, a doily, Stickles, silver ink, silver cord, silver CS form SU, Vintage Photo and Broken China distress inks, Copic markers, felt, SU brad, Martha Stewart branch punch, Prima flowers, floral picks,  and Jo-Ann ribbon.

Now hop on over to Fairy Fun Friday and see the yummy new beginnings that our design team has to stoke your mojo!  Hope to see you playing along with us this forthnight.

Wishing you all the best of blessings in this new year.
