F - Fantasy


Hello and welcome to another letter in the Alphabet Challenge, this time its  'F'  for ...Fantasy


and we would love to see how you interpret  'Fantasy.'  I have have Fairies at the bottom of my garden, well I wish I had, they might do a bit weeding now and then .....although this one certainly doesn't look like a Gardener!
I have used the TH Cabinet card dies, cut the arch from DP that looks like stone, then cut  2 extra frames and covered these with the paper, these were layered with foam pads over the image which is Lost Coast Design,  to give depth, as if she was 'hiding'  The flowers are from the Tattered Floral Strip die, another new purchase bought with 'stash' money left over from Harrogate.
If you need any inspiration, the rest of the DT have some great makes, so please pop over here to take a look.  Don't forget, we now pick a Top 3 and have a great Winners badge for you.

I am entering this at:
  Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
  Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes
  Creative Card Crew - Handmade flowers
  Oldie but a Goodie- Make it Girly  (image is old)

Thats it for now,  hope you all have a great weekend.

Avril xx
