Friendship Rose

Hey folks! I've got a card to share with you today featuring one of the Fall Flora Fairies from the SCACD Stamp Co. These fairies can be  used for so many occasions. I think they are just perfect for cards for those sweet little girls in your life...after all, what little girl doesn't love fairies?!

So with that in mind, I set out to make a very "girly" card. I decided to ink up Friendship Rose and paired her up with some soft pastel papers from Prima. I lightly distressed all the paper edges and pulled out my sewing machine to add some stitching. The pretty crocheted trim is a dollar store find. I coated the petal edges of the little Prima rose in with Stardust Stickles. The pearls were made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White. The bow was made with my trusty Bow Easy. A few pearl sprays were tucked in behind the bow. The little tag was cut with Spellbinders and the sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps "Beachy Sentiments".



Friendship Rose was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with Copics. Her wings, shoes and green polkadots on her dress were coated with Stardust Stickles. Friendship Rose also comes with a pretty rose accessory stamp.
