Fairies and Fantasy - Sweet Stampin' DT

Gooooood morning my dears!

Thank you all for your well-wishes. I should hopefully know when the end of the pain is in sight soon, when I get my appointment for the specialist through. Fingers crossed it'll be soon!

Now, another Saturday means another challenge over at Sweet Stampin', and this week the theme is Fairies and Fantasy.
As always, I had one thing in my mind when I started (a scene featuring a castle, to be precise), and ended up with something completely different...

Namely, this:

The stamp was a magazine freebie I simply had to have and unfortunately I cannot remember for the life of me where the papers are from! I do remember that this wasn't even close to the colour scheme I first had in mind, but it grew on me, and now I rather like her earthy outfit!
Naturally the wings have been given the Stardust stickles treatment (There's a law that states fairy wings need Stardust Stickles, don't you know!) and I kept the embellishments very minimal. Just a flower in the same colour as her wings, and a button of the same colour threaded with twine to continue the earthy theme.

And yes... I had the line "Brown paper packages tied up with string" from My Favourite Things running through my mind over and over and over again, lol. (And here I go again... as no doubt are you reading this, lol)

Right then, off you go to visit my fellow Sweeties, who have some gorgeous creations lined up for you, and then you'll join in the fun, no? You know you want to! ;-)

Have a fabby weekend!

Adorable card, Sammy! Sorry, I've not had a chance to visit for a while. Is this still the pain you had from the dentist a couple/three weeks ago? Whatever it is, I'm so sorry and I hope they resolve it for you soon!! Hugs, Darnell
