It's Fairy Magic

Fairies are one of my fave image to colour and work with - must be the child in me that still wants to believe in fairies and magic. Oh and I read a lot of Urban Fantasy/paranormal books where magic and the fae are usually part of the supernatural world. I think I spend too much of my time in fantasy land!

Anyway onto my card...This one is for All Dressed Up's Challenge #14 to use sewing (I couldn't be bothered to have a fight with the sewing machine this morning so did some hand stitching instead. I need someone to show me how to actually sew on cards. I think my tension is wrong, but I haven't got a clue what to do to make it right!), for Creative Inspirations Challenge #265 for the sketch below and for The Ribbon Girl's colour challenge for this month to use purple. I've used lots of purple this weekend - must be the time of year!

And here she is after all that!

    adorable,loveley.About sewing with your machine,it isn´t so difficult as you think.
