Well, I'm out of my comfort zone again by using 4 patterned papers - yes 4 - on one card!! I might use a few but four isn't the norm. Not sure if I like the ones I decided to put together or not. They are all Funky Fairy downloads and so is the gorgeous Funky Fairy. It was recently Shaz's birthday and she reduced the price of her downloads so it would have been rude of me to ignore her birthday gesture. It certainly made my limited funds go much further as I make all my cards and give 50% of everything I make to charity. I chose some gorgeous papers but couldn't resist these fairies and also some Christmas images. I even got the sewing box out and sewed the buttons onto the card!! I used a Spellbinders flower die-cut as my X-cut punch seems to be giving up the ghost even with trying foil and lightweight sandpaper in it.
This fits the bill for two challenges:
Funky Fairys Challenge Blog - recipe: 1 ribbon, 2 flowers, 3 buttons and 4 patterned papers
