Card Commissioned by my Son for a Work Colleague




My son asked me if I'd make a card for a lady who is retiring where he works so I agreed. It had to be A4 so that lots of people can sign it. I have used Buttercup from my Crafter's Companion Flower Fairies CD and imported her and made her larger than normal. I have decoupaged her more than normal as the card won't be posted.

This cards fits the criteria for the following challenges:

Friday Sketchers - the sketch this week appealed to me but I thought I'd use it on a square or A5 card but I thought as I liked it so much I'd use it for this A4 card. This was certainly a challenge but thank you to Friday Sketchers as I think it worked well as sometimes I struggle on what to put on a card this size

Daring Cardmakers - "Away with the Fairies"

Dutch Dare Challenge - to use cutting dies and/or punches

Created by Hand - Fairies.

What a gorgeous classic flower fairy - I ahven't seen on in ages. It is adorable. And how strange that two challenges should have fairies in the same week! thanks for playing

It must have been quite a challenge making an A4 card Kym but you’ve done a fab job!
I have to do one for a retirement in a few weeks too and if I’m honest I’m finding the prospect rather daunting.

Your Fairy image is really pretty and I just love the way you’ve decorated the inside of the card.
