My sister, my friend....



A friend of mine asked for a card for her little sister and I immediately thought of this image which is actually sugar plum fairies, but I coloured the plum green to resemble a pear and make it a year round card! I think it's perfect! Inside is a sweet sister poem. The challenge this week at Fairy Fun Fridays is to use the below photo as inspiration. Hope you like my card. I am entering these challenges....Incy Wincy - punches, ABC - Y You and Me, Penny's Paper Challenge - seven flowers, flutterby - open (Danni - I missed you), your next stamp challenge - flowers.


I was also inspired by this recent photo I took of my little sister in a green dress which reminds me of the younger fairy. We had so much fun that day!
