A Birthday Card

Hello again, I know I know don't faint, two posts in two days, I did say I would be posting more often and this one won't be as long as the last one.

This little fairy came free with a Magazine a few days ago and I hadn't got round to putting her away. I had some time today so rather than do the ironing I decided to have a play instead. I've coloured her with Promarkers but her skirt is paper pieced as is the little present, the paper for which is from an old Kanban CD. The die cuts are all dies I've had in my stash for a long time but I haven't used them as much as I should another thing I am hoping to correct this year. I coloured the flower and the panel for the sentiment with Promarkers as well as I didn't have anything that went with the other paper which is a Bearly Mine one I used to test the printer was working again. I coloured some seam binding and added some pearls to it,oh and the grass is another die I've not used very much I coloured that with distress inks. I added some gems from my stash, some glitter and job done.

A lovely card and I think there is something quite satisfying about using the things we have but forgotten about. Love the paper piecing.
