Fairy Tales

Coffee of the Day - Coconut

Hello everyone!
I'm here to share a card to hopefully inspire you to grab your beautiful Elisabeth Bell images and head to your craft room for some creative time. :)

My husband and I recently celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. quite the milestone in this day and age! I made him this card, using the precious 'February Flutter' digital image and the inspiring sentiment from Ginger's House you see here. the inside reads, "thank you for being my happily ever after." :) he really is!


while the card style might be a bit more frou frou-y than I would typically make for him, he did like it! especially when he saw that the fairy prince was wearing the same colors as his favorite super hero - The Incredible Hulk! ;)

Papers are from the Basic Grey Kioshi collection, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, little flourish die is by Cheery Lynn, and grosgrain ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. doily was sprayed with several shades of glimmer mist and a pretty floral postage stamp was re-purposed in the corner. buttons, as always, are from my vintage collection. dies are by Spellbinders and sentiment punch is by SU! lots of shimmerz paint added to the main image, too.

may you have a 'happily ever after' in your life, too! :)
Jennifer
