I was delighted to see that I had come second in a Crafty Purple Frog Challenge and got to pick some Crafty Purple Frog sheets as my prize. I don't think there's many of the sheets now that I don't have in the decoupage format. There are also pyromage sheets but I like to cut out the decoupage.

Over at the Crafty Purple Frog the challenge this fortnight is "fly away with us". I decided to use a sheet I printed off recently of the poinsettia fairy. She's still one of my all time favourite sheets. Her eyes are just so beautiful. The backing papers are all scraps from my box and I haven't a clue where they are from. The image has been decoupaged, I have highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and I have distressed the edges of the papers and image with a dark moss chalk ink pad. One piece of paper I have put through my Swiss Dots embossing folder. Embellishments include a doily which I have inked with the same dark moss chalk ink pad, ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann's Digi Store, thin lace which I tied like a ribbon, three pearl gems, spotty ribbon and finally a gorgeous poinsettia flower which I got in some candy last year and I need some therapy as this is the last one and they are all gone now boo hoo.
