It's time for another Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge!

It's week #27 and I can't believe how quick the weeks are flying by!!! I'm sure I'm in a time warp! Ha Ha!
We are in the middle of re-decorating the sitting/living room and it's like an explosion in a mattress factory at the moment. My son Paul, is brilliant but just dives in. He doesn't do 'prep' so the room is a nightmare of bits of scraped off wall paper, dust and muck and bullets. It's no good me trying to clean up as everything is just dumped everywhere and I can't get at it. *sigh*. I'm just staying out until tomorrow when he comes back to paint the ceiling. THEN we'll clean up and I will then wallpaper myself. Yep, ME! I'm quite good at it and Alan (hubby), is not fit and can't decorate for toffee anyway.

Enough waffle from me, let's get to my card before you fall asleep!!!
The theme this week at Fairy Fun Fridays is colour inspired using this picture........


How gorgeous is that decor!!! I LOVE those colours!
Here's my interpretation.......

 
I used the adorable 'Gina' from the image Lil' Gina 'n Gerry Giraffe'.
(I left Gerry grazing in the Fairy Meadow).
Do you like the edge around my circle? It's made with a Martha Stewart border punch. How cool is THAT!!!
(The idea isn't mine and I cannot for the life of me, remember where I saw it. I would give credit in a flash if I knew).

Recipe
Copics
Doodlebugs Design Paper Pot pourri (top) 
DCWV Nana's Nursery DP (Below)
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon from stash
Leaves via Woodware punch

With such gorgeous colours as your inspiration, you can't go wrong!!
Pop over to the Fairy Fun Fridays challenge blog and take a look at the amazing cards created by the other wonderfully talented Fairy Princesses! There's inspiration by the bucketful there.

Well, it's back to dodging the muck and bullets for me until tomorrow.
Take care and 'see' you soon.
