Sketch Saturday - Sketch #354

The Paper Shelter is sponsoring this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.  I've used their image There's a Fairy in my Tea! for my card.  This image has a lot of flexibility - I didn't think of fairy wings behind the girl, but rather of leaves.  I think I have spring on the brain - and am waiting for the colors to break through here in Minnesota!  Some of our trees are looking like buds are starting to grow.

Unintentionally, I ended up taking a little liberty with Alex's sketch because I forgot to add the extra piece of paper under the circle.  Oops!

I am determined to make a dent in my stash of patterned paper, so I've cut into three new pieces of paper for this card - gasp!!  It wasn't easy!  The little flower die cuts are from Impression Obsession, the hello is from WPlus9.

Check out our DT 's ideas here and play along with us this week - maybe you'll be inspired to cut into virgin paper too!
