Not a Faerie in sight!!!

Good Morning, it's an early start for me today, so just thought I'd catch up with you all.

Hope you're all enjoying the Tonic shows on Create & Craft. Jodie will be on Ideal World today with the Pick of the Day, hope you can join her.

I appreciate not everyone is into faeries, so I designed this card with that in mind - there's not a faerie in sight.

This is an 8x8" scalloped card. The background is embossed using our Roseanne embossing folder. The corners are so elegant and are from Ivy Bridge corner set. The centre design is from the Fae Hideaway set - I've cut the side without the faerie twice and I love the effect it gives. I'll certainly be using this over and over again. I've inked most of the die cuts with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - I think it's Vintage photo.

The Birthday Wishes is also a Tonic die from the Everyday Sentiments set. I've cut out two die shapes. one in caramel and another in cream, glued them together but slightly offset them to give a shadow effect.

The card is finished off with a rather large Silky Crush bow. I love this ribbon. I can't believe there's not a pearl or gem in sight, lol.

Have a fabulous day, I'm off to work to do some playing, he he!!
