Fairies in the Garden…

…and Mandelina is her name. isn’t she sweet and she is from Paper Cupcakes. Marie challenged us this week for Magical Monday, to create a project using hand made pattern paper – nothing store bought.  I love making my own paper totally from scratch – so to speak – but for this card I merely stamped my leaves with Versamark and then clear embossed them – very simple and quick.

And  here’s a close up of the tag sentiment from Verve Stamps “Fairy Tales”.

Please come join in the fun this week at Paper Cupcakes. You can use an image you already have, purchase one, or Nina always has a freebie posted on the challenge site. And, there’s always a prize offered to one lucky participant!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.
