Fairy Friend

Wahoo for another challenge at One Stop Crafts. This week are sponsored by the AMAZING A Day for Daisies. I love her artistic style and all the images are adorable. Stop over at OSCC to see what my awesome design team members created with the images. We'd love you to join in our For the One I Love challenge and if you have A Day for Daisies images we'd LOVE to see how you use them. There are lots of love/valentine challenges going on right now, so join in the tummy butterflies season and create a card for the one you love.

My Creation
I paper pieced my fairy's dress and wings and then added depth and shimmer with SU markers and spica  glitter pens. TIP: To keep your ribbon ends from fraying, lightly touch them to a flame. The heat melts the fibers and NO more frays! Be careful though or your hard work could go up in flames!
Image Detail
