Just Be Yourself

Another make from me, and I have to say that I'm pleased with the way this one has turned out. Although you can hardly see them, I'm really pleased with the two different papers that I did for the strips behind the image, and one of them was my first attempt at making my own damask paper, so you'll probably see more of that one. The image is from the new DezinaWorld fairies 2 sheet (which I love), the metal heart came from Mad About Cards, (only £1 for a whole bag of metal shapes and brads!) the gems were in my stash and everything else was done in PSP.



I followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday

The fairy makes it count for the Flutterby Wednesday challenge, which is to use a fairy butterfly or angel in your project.

The current challenge at Crafty Creations is to use wings in your project.

The Belli challenge is to use ribbons. I hope a single ribbon counts, lol, I did definitely follow the rest of the guidelines, this was a bit that had been lying in my ribbon bag for so long that I'm actually covering up an un-identified bit of grunge (think it's glue :P) with the heart ;)

The ABC Challenge is "N is for New". My new items are the fairy and the heart.

And I'm also entering it into the ongoing DezinaWorld spot prize challenge. All you have to do for this one is to make any image from DezinaWorld and email it to the blog :)
