Last Tuesday's Teapotter Tickle card theme was a Fantasy Fairy Teaparty. We were asked to use our birth month flower and a fairy on our cards. I repeat stamped my PTI chrysanthemum stamp on the background panel and colored the flowers with two shades of SU pink and the leaves with two shades of SU green. I used my MFT die-namics to cut a black frame and cream center for my Prima Fairy Rhymes stamp. I colored her in the same two SU pinks w/blonde hair. I used my white Wink of Stella glitter ink brush on her dress and "wings." I adhered three Zva pearls to the top arch of the frame and then to my main panel. I added pink vintage seam binding that I crinkled a bit to the panel. I used Scotch mounting squares to adhere to my MFT slate gray base. This card was time-consuming and made with love! I hope that whoever receives it as their March Tickle will like it. :D
I made my 4 x 8.5 card for today's WT472 challenge.
Thanks for looking!

Wow Gabby! Your chrysanthemum stamping and colouring looks like designer paper! Beautiful! Love the little fairy too and that you coloured her dress to match the flowers. The crinkled ribbon is a perfect finishing touch!

This has such a sweet, nostalgic feel to it, Gabby. The colours are so perfect for a chrysanthemum themed card. The background is amazing - it's like DP, so much colouring. And the focal image tag is just so darling. I bet whoever gets tickled with this will be so pleased.
