Special Friend


It is my turn to host the challenge this week at Crafty Ribbons and I chose fairies. One of my favourites for cards. This is an 8x8 card I was asked to make for a friend to give to a very special lady. This lady loves vintage, fairies, angels and flowers and amongst my stash I found this topper from Crafter's Companion. It was perfect for the card I had in mind and apparently she loved the card so much it made her cry.

Papers - Antebellum from LOTV

I can understand this card making the lady cry. It is truly beautiful. Sadly, the camera doesn't show our cards as they are in real life. However, this card is just stunning. Hugs, Carol S.xx
