Friendship Fairy

Back to pastels today, I made this card a few weeks back.

The stamp is from the latest Lili of the Valley release – Fairy with dove.  The sentiment is from the Vintage Labels Just to say set.  The paper is from the Bonnets ‘n Bowties paper pad.

The lace, pearls and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I have used 40mm wild rose, cherry blossoms and 15mm roses.
