Lacy Sunshine Challenge #42 Fairy Dreams

Good Sunday morning! I hope you have all had a restful weekend so far. It's time for another fabulous challenge at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog and this week our challenge is called Fairy Dreams! You can use any winged image, but I used the funky Olive Dapplenewt, which is one of Heather's new images!

Her outfit kind of reminds me of one of mine back in the days when I could get away with short dresses, so I used colours inspired by those times. One of my favourite outfits was a short sparkly turquoise dress with knee length Doc Martens boots and my favourite hair colour was a rich purple with turquoise streaks, so I coloured up Olive in a similar style.

This was my first attempt at dip dyed hair and am pretty pleased with how it came out. We are also sponsored by Petallu, whose owner Lucinda has made the gorgeous flowers I have used. I am in love with these and they are made from such a beautiful soft paper as well. I will be going back for more!

Anyway here's my card... Isn't she cute?!
