Fairy Wings

Our challenge, set by the fab Padster on the MSE was to create something that moves.  Well, I'm quite sure this beautiful Garden Fairy from LOTV would if only she got off the toadstool! Seriously though, these fairy pre-printed images are gorgeous and being an Aquarian I loved my birthstone amethyst colours in her wings

These beautiful pink and green papers are from the gorgeous First Edition Spring Feast pad. The guipure lace was given to me by my gorgeous sis-in-law, I wonder how many lovely wedding dresses this lace has adorned.  All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the flourishes are from my favourite Marianne die. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon is from my ever expanding ribbon box.
