Past Times Fairy

I was commissioned by Barbara to make a card with a fairy on it, similar to one I made earlier. It needed to have the words 'Remembering Past Times' as well as a birthday greeting. The fairy's wings had to be 3D.

The story is that Barbara goes away once a year with her friend Jen, who she has known for many years. Jen's husband has Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, so she is a full time carer. When he goes into respite care Barbara and Jen go away on holiday. Jen collects garden fairy statues, so they always seek out the nearest Past Times store to see what they have.  I hope they are both pleased with the result. I also hope you have a good birthday Jen and that the next holiday is a good break for both of you.

I used Basic Grey 6x6" pad of Lemonade papers, the card and the card candy is from Craftwork Cards. I printed the words onto card in deep pink ink on the computer and cut them out with my Stampin' Up punch. The scalloped surrounds for the words is also a Stampin' Up punch.  I used chalk inks, blossoms, stickles glitter, perfect pearls from my stash. The image is from Stamping Bella - Agnes Ketto stamp. I used my Promarkers of course to colour her in.
