Fairy Wishes

This is a new challenge blog that I came across when blog hopping - Scrappy Frogs. This is their fifth challenge and it is:

This challenge will be fairies!! Yes, fairies! You can do any type of project as long as it has a fairy on it.

The papers and Milly image I won a few weeks ago from Tinker & Co and I'd printed them off but not really used them and they are so pretty and delicate and fitted this challenge perfectly! I've lightly inked the edges with my trusty faded black ink pad but the papers have a 'shabby' feel to them anyway. I've used some fancy scissors for the edging as I've not yet won the lottery so the Nesties will just have to wait that bit longer!

And look - there is even a little frog! The flower has been cut from scraps of the backing paper and I've used my trusty Cuttlebug die. Centre is a card candy brad which I have inked as the colour was a bit bright. Ribbon from my stash, and the sentiment tile was a freebie from a craft magazine a while ago.

I've actually followed an old Sketch Saturday layout for inspiration and its one that I didn't manage to complete at the time.
