Fairy Donna - My Crafty Heart DT Card

Hi all, hope you are all managing to keep warm in UK!  With all this horrid dull weather we are having, it's the perfect time to dream of Summer.... and this card really was a joy to make. The gorgeous digi image is by Teresa from My Crafty Heart and is called 'Fairy Donna' named after my MCH teamie, the wonderful Donna. Isn't she a beauty and a dream to colour!! Perfect for so many occasions too!

'Fairy Donna loves to relax by rocking gently in the sunshine on her rose covered swing'

Products Used: All available from My Crafty Heart

IMAGE:         'Fairy Donna' by Teresa Allington
PAPERS:        'Miss Nelly' 6 x 6 Pad by Kaisercraft
FLOWERS:    'Resin Flowers' by My Crafty Heart and 'Dusky Pink Rose Trim' by Prima
CHARM:        'Butterfly' from 'Woodland Charm Collection' at My Crafty Heart
STICKLES:     'Star Dust' available from My Crafty Heart

I've added the twine from my own stash and made the Sentiment on computer. Colouring is with Copics, Flexmarkers and Promarkers. I've added 'Star Dust' Stickles to the wings and the little buttons on her shoes. But couldn't catch the light right to show off the sparklies!!

I hope you like this card as much as I enjoyed making it! It really did brighten up my day and  I've used my favourite paper pad of the moment 'Miss Nelly' - Wow! it is SO gorgeous!! I've added the photo below because it shows off the beautiful paper - it has glossy pattern and is really lush!

Alessandra said...

so gorgeous, Sweetie! Love the big flower, it makes thecard very special!
Hope you don't feel too bad in this cold, my it's soooooooooooo freezing's the coldest week since 30 yrs... I'm so thankful that I took my rabbits in the house and that they don't live outside anymore. They would have died the last nights it's bitter cold (-20°C) they cannot bear this much minus degrees.
I'm glad I am catching up in commenting... what horrible last days...
Hugs, Alessandra
