Peace and Joy

What a long and exhausting week I have had - so much overtime and so little crafting time.  And way too long between posts!  So I am happy to be back today for Fairy Fun Friday with a card I made with one of the Prairie Fairy"s beautiful new digital Christmas images.  This one is called Christmas Doves and comes with a full set of sentiments too.  There are several other vintage type Christmas fairy sets available to so be sure to check out the Seasonal section of the store. 

Our challenge theme this wee is Buttons & Bows.  I decided  to go with a white-on-white theme for this card.  The edges of the bottom layer of white have been glittered with Star Dust Stickles and the next layer up embssed with the SU Petals A-Plenty embossing folder.  The die cuts that the doves are perched on and the sentiment is on are from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Lattice set.  A label punch from SU was used to punch the vellum piece that  the sentiment is on and Stickles were lightly applied around the edge.  The buttons were embossed with silver EP and the Stickled flourish was cut with a BossKut die.  The fabric flower was made by cutting four shapes from crinoline with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  I wet it with plain water, scrunched it and dryed it with my heat tool, dabbed on a bit of glue here and there and sprinkled SU Dazzling Diamons glitter over it.  I've had that pretty clear plastic and silver button in my stash forever - knew someday I would find a use for it!  The flower sits atop a large bow made of white tulle - sorry you can't see it too well in the photo. 

Now that you 've seen my card, hop on over to the Fairy Fun Friday blog to see what the other design team members have to show.  I had a peek at some really beautiful samples that you are going to love!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hope you have a marvelous day!

Blessings & hugs,
