This week it was Jane's turn to set the dare for us Daring Card Makers she said ...

So here is is............you can do any subject but the card has to incorporate WINGS of some sort.....so you can do - butterflies, angels, fairies, insects.........birds........anything basically if it has wings.

Good luck and may you all FLY HIGH ladies. !

Luckily I knew I had just the thing. When I went to Harrogate Papercrafts show I came across some lovely fairy die cuts by Lili of the Valley. They were an absolute bargain and so pretty, plus my Neice is called Lilia so couldnt pass them up so into my basket they went. I knew that this card was the right chance for one of the cute little things to make their debut.

I Started with a piece of white cardstock which I folded to make the blank, and attached a piece of yummy paper from Aprils Self Adressed kit. I attached a square aperture doodah (another harrogate purchase) from Craftwork cards and used an ink pad to colour some of the embossed flowers to match the colour scheme. I also used a piece of pink ribbon from American Crafts to go down the side of the card. Then it was time for Fairy Rose to make her appearence. She was 3d mounted into the centre of the aperature, and I used a little bit of stickles glitter glue to highlight her wings (I then dropped the pot into my cup of tea :S)

I had planned to use a Heidi Swapp rolling stamp to stamp "kisses" along the bottom in pink and I know I stamp like an elephant in oven gloves but it was impossible to get a clean image, surely I am not that inept?

So there you go, a pretty pink fairy card suitable for any occasion.

Why not take a wander over to the Daring Card Makers blog to check out the design teams work and have a go yourself, dont forget to leave us a link so we can see

I promise i will be very good and do a midweek blog, so remind me if it looks like I have forgot. xxxxxxxx

I think decorating your tea with glitter is taking this prettifying thing a bit too far!
