Baby Fairy Flora for 5

I've managed 5 challenges with this card - this is good as I'm not managing many cards. Had a disasterous day yesterday - lost my electrical power, went shopping and I noticed someone had pranged my car (on the passenger side, which I don't often see so I don't really know when or where). Plugged my glue gun in when I had power and it went  phfffftttt, sparks flew out and it fused all my sockets. I changed the blade on my craft knife and sliced into my finger (it was my father's, had it for ever and never done that before). It wasn't too bad or too deep but it was in the fleshy part of my finger and bled and bled!!! Finally I burnt another finger cooking my tea - crafting with rubber gloves on is not GOOD!!
Hopefully today will turn out a little less eventful and I can start catching up yet again.

DP2 = Thanks Heaven for Little Girls
Anything Goes - Three layers
Creative Card Crew - Sparkle and Shine
Sketch Saturday - The Sketch (obviously!!)
A Pocketful of Posies - Winged Things.

I used this adorable image of Mo's - rubbish colouring, think I might do it again as I've got rid of the rubber gloves and am down to a plaster. She's coloured in distress inks and her wings are glittered with Star Dust stickles, the corner are cut with an MS round the page punch and the pink corrugated is some I found whilst having a 'clear out'. The papers are DCWV Once upon a Time and the flowers a mixture from my stash and the pearls Basic Grey.

Right I'm off to re-do the image, this one won't do!!
EDITED - Image re-done, still not perfect but better!!

Well your card certainly makes it for it Heather, it'd gorgeous. And if its any consolation, I've just got a nasty papers cut making up a card!!! lol

Paula said...

Goodness - sounds a bit hairy - so hope you've recovered without too much permanent damage - glad the cut wasn't too bad, hope you've had a tetanus?? Love the card with those glorious corners - I think corners are another of your specialities. Now I could happily have redone my image from Sunday's posting but couldn't get it off without ripping the whole card apart & in reality it didn't look as bad as it does on the screen. How did you do it?? Don't worry about answering - just my nightly musings.
