Fancy and Fun....

This is one of those projects that started to be made a long time ago... and I would add things as they came to me...  the inside of the card started about 5 months ago... and the front of the card was done on Monday... to match a few challenges... 

Which are:

The Shabby Tea Room   Color challenge with birds added

The Kraft Journal  Anything goes... 

Craft Hoarders Anonymous   Flowers that are hoarded...  

I have to tell you something also that is very special to me... I WON another challenge at the KRAFT JOURNAL... and also won a $15.oo gift shopping spree in their store... wonder feelings from this in all ways...  WHAT A GREAT HONOR... thank you all for the vote of love you have given to my work and play...  I cherish the feelings .  


Now I know you are waiting to see this all.. and so here it is... 


Front of the card
I was playing with my Tapestry stamps and made a wreath...  love these little peg stamps... as you can create so very much with them...  I added the wreath onto a background of stenciled goodness and fun using TH gothic stencil and textured paste... fun galore... and then colored some of it with a baby wipe!!! 
Of course I love MS lace makers... my paper punches... and since my studio has all been organized again... I have all my dies and punches in one location... so it is so convenient to pull out what I need to play with to create fun and a mess in my studio... all over the place.   

Do you see the little bird tucked into the next among the flowers... she is resting... and having a litter of babies.. 
The flowers were made from colored coffee filters... and the leaves a drew, cut out and added liquid pearl (gold) as accents on the leaves... 
You can see the tapestry stamping a little clearer on this picture...  each leaf and cluster is a separate stamp... so this is a lot of stamping...  and a lot of fun to me... 

Moving back a little... 

Getting ready to open the card up....... 

The inside of the card... 
Each section I will talk about below... 

Starting at the back.. a paper with MS lace all around the edges, then a layer of Anna Griffin paper... and then a section that creates the folds in this card...  and I made it into a pocket...
Swiss dotted (embossed paper) on the front of the pocket... 
Snails, and little fairy on a mushroom... 

The tag... with a vintage rose clip art fussy cutted... 

Tea Bag folding.. I love tea bag folding... and this is called the Celtic Knot... a little wreath with some tissue paper flowers... 

Ahhhh the big old fluffy bird with a fairy riding on her back...  I love this vintage clip art... so very fun and wish I was a fairy at times and could jump on a birds back for a nice breezy ride around the country side... wouldn't you like to do that too???
WHAT FUN would that be??

The last section is a fairy named Luna moth... she is so beautiful... I had to use her here... 

Another very special fold...  and so very small ... I really had to work at this folded flower... 

There she is in all her glory... 
Well there you have it... my card of love
Love of PINK
Love of BIRDS.
Love of LACE
Hope you have something to create that you LOVE ...  I certainly have LOVED making this card and also sharing it with ya'll... 
Hope you have a fun day... and enjoy creating something special... Thanks for stopping by for a visit...
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
