Purple Spring Fairy

     Sunday seems like a good day to do the challenge at Lacy Sunshine and to use one of Heather's lovely and fun images.  It also seemed like a good day for a monochromatic project so of course, it had to be another purple card.


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, added sparkle to her wings, then die cut it and used chalk to highlight the embossing around the edges.  I die cut another piece for the mat, using dies from Spellbinders for each of those pieces.  I layered them together on a lavender card front, then added the lilac butterfly and the purple bow.  The sentiment was printed, hand cut and matted, and added at the bottom of the image.

     It's been a lovely weekend here and I've gotten so much done.  All the raised beds for the garden are hoed, weeded, raked, and waiting for plants.  They say we may get a shower of rain tonight or tomorrow, and heaven knows we need it!  Just in case we only get a sprinkle instead of a shower, I plan to water the beds really well tomorrow afternoon.  If we get enough rain to soak the beds, I can skip over that step and just plant next weekend.   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Pretty, pretty card with such a cute image. Love the addition of the butterfly on it too. The purple.....I had to smile because this afternoon I was going through a bunch of my scarps and came to the color purple and immediately thought of you!
Sounds like you've made a good head start on that garden!

Such a nice card. Great coloring - Love that purple hair. LOL The butterfly and pretty bow as nice additions. I'm envious of your garden I can't even find my garden area. Out back where my gardens are is in the open and many drifts of snow. Most of the garden areas have 5-6 feet of snow right now. Plant something for me would you please?
