Fairy Love

Hello everyone,

I'm so happy you stopped by today to see what I have to show you for our Fairy Fun Fridays challenge.  This week our challenge to you is to make something For a Sweetheart.  I was so lucky to receive this awesome fairy image to use for my card, along with the vintage heart lock, key and sentiment.  I believe they will be on sale at The Prairie Fairy later today.  

Here are some basic details on my card:
Images:  Key to My Heart and Vintage Lock and Key -  Prairie Fairy
Paper:  SU Always Avacado and Very Vanilla, Flourishes CS for the images
Ink:  Printer ink, Copics, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Stamps:  Digital images from The Prairie Fairy, plus a text stamp that has a lot of love quotes that I won in a give-away and it has no name on it
Accessories:  Doily, Vintage Photo glimmer spray, Prima flowers and crystal flourish, lace from Jo-Ann's, crocheted lace from SU, bead caps ordered from eBay, Crystal Effects on the lock and key, Star Dust Stickles on fairies' wings

I absolutely LOVE this fairy image.  When you look at it uncolored, it looks kind of busy and hard to color, but it colored up beautifully and really didn't take long at all.  I want to use it again this Valentine's season so you haven't seen the last of this one!

Now hop on over to Fairy Fun Fridays to see what the rest of the team has to offer.  We have some new team members and I hope you will give them a warm welcome.
