Shhhhhh! You Ain't Seen This!!

Carol is back from her holiday with another great sketch, and the sketch is:

The boys have been invited to a 5th Birthday party in November (Lynsey you can stop reading here or feign surprise when you do see the card!) and I wanted to make a princess themed card. And as I do like a sketch challenge, I decided to get the card made early and used Carol's challenge sketch.

The pink stitched paper is from my camper van swop from Allie (I actually already had some of this, in pink, green and black but never used them - think I will now as it is lovely thick handmade paper!) the fairy is made from various Sizzix dies with Quickutz tiara and wand. The net on the dress is actually a remnant from a friends wedding veil (she knew I'd be able to use it!) and the name has been cut using the Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet.

The translucent vellum has been cut using my new Martha Stewart punch (I am liking it very much!), ribbon from my stash, and the metal heart / star embellishment is actually a posh paperclip from Paperchase.
Happy Birthday Anya when it does eventually arrive - the boys are already asking when is it time to go to the party!!
