Simple card for wedding anniversary

Hi everybody,

Today I'd like to show you a (for me) very simple card with one of the Flower Fairies by Wee Stamps.
We had a wedding anniversary to go to and I wanted to give money and to make it a bit more personal give it in a handmade card. But I had very little time to craft so I had to keep it simple. The sentiment is computer generated and the adorable little fairy and the gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts flowers really do all the work on this card.
A close up of the adorable little fairy. Colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced as always.
And the pretty flowers. I thought the die cut leaves sort of matched the flowers of the fairy.
And the little pieces. As you can see I didn't cut out every single flower on this one and I colored the little leaves under the bouquet on the base layer. Had to win some time that way.

Hope you like my card even though it's so simple. It still took me hours to make :).

  1. Absolutely gorgeous and the little fairy is beautiful.

  2. Such a pretty card, Mariska, despite the simplicity (as you say!) - I wouldn't call paper piecing that sweet Wee fairy, as you do so well, simple! Beautiful floral embellishments and fabulous colouring as usual! Hugs, Lisa x
