MCH - DT Card - Sweet Eline in the 'Fairy Belle' Wood

Hello all, hope you are all enjoying the weekend. This is a card that was inspired by the new Prima - 'Fairy Belle' Pad which is now in stock at My Crafty Heart. Wow - this pad is So gorgeous. It's like a Fairy Woodland in pretty earthy/neutral colours.

I have used the gorgeous Nellie Snellen - 'Sweet Eline's Flower' again. But I've coloured her quite different this time and stuck to earthy colours of grey and brown to go with the paper that I've chosen. I think she looks very different but is just as beautiful.

I've not used too many embellies because I didn't want to cover up too much of the paper but have used lots of sparkle and gems and pearls!!  I also tried out my new Memory Box Willow Dragonfly Die and it's fab!! This little dragonfly is perfect for using up scraps of leftover design paper. Then you can add pearls or gems if you wish and it looks so pretty.

Products used - all available from My Crafty Heart store:-

Paper - Prima - 'Fairy Belle' 6 x 6 pad
Die - Memory Box - 'Willow Dragonfly'
Pearls - Jenni Bowlin Pearls 'Cream Cheese'
Gems - Hero Arts 'Small Mixed Gemstones'
Sparkle - Stickles - 'Star Dust'

I've added some lace from stash and a sentiment from Pink Petticoat. I thought this would make a nice Get Well card as it's quite calm and pretty.

Thank You for all your lovely comments! I will catch up with you all soon! I managed to get some colouring done yesterday and really enjoyed it. I had a bit of a cold last week though and it's now settled on my chest and so I'm not feeling so good today - it's affecting my asthma and I'm just struggling to breathe this evening.  I have doubled up my inhalers and so will see how it goes. I really don't think this blooming weather helps at all !!! Hope you are all staying cosy and warm!!!
Love n Hugs!
Sue xx
