Pink Garden Fairy

Hi there! It’s Sunday again, and time for me to share my second inspiration project for this month’s Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook Challenge. Our theme for September is “Think Pink for Breast Cancer “, but the DT had an additional challenge this week, and it’s to use decorative borders 🙂 I used the pretty image, Carnation Fairy, as the focal point of my card, and colored her up with my Copics, trying to match the colors in the papers I’d chosen before starting.

I knew which borders I wanted to use right from the beginning, so cut 3 of the flower butterfly borders from a Couture Collection die to form the base, and make it look as if she is taking a stroll through a garden. I also cut the curved trellis border at the top of the print paper, matching the shape at the top of the image, as well as on the card base. I assembled the bottom layers with a bit of a curve, using some foam strips to support the extended middle parts. The die has butterflies fluttering around it, so I used some of these around the image and the stamped sentiment.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
