CLP #29: September

Hello hello! Ooh, it's the first of the month and you know what that means, right?

This month I used another fabulous Gurlee Girl Blossom Fairies stamps. I'd love to introduce you to Blossom Fairy Cammy:

Isn't she beautiful? Make sure you bop on over to the CLP Challenge Blog and check out all the DT samples - you'll get a great view of the other Blossom Fairies and an adorable Gurlee Girl witch. I *so* need that one!

Cammy is made from two layers - the wings, right arm and little butterfly make up the second layer. I've used papers from a 7 Gypsies "Nottinghill" 6x6 pack. Delicious! The papers are a little lighter weight than I expected, but they worked out perfectly. The large ribbon that Cammy is sitting on is ivory sheer over green satin. The buckle thingy is a vintage piece from a flea market find. I think it might be mother-of-pearl, but I'm not sure. I think it needs a little more embellishment... maybe a strip of lace over the sheer. 

So, I forgot to include a vertical panel from the sketch. Sorry Chelsea! Since I struggle horribly with sentiments of any kind, I replaced the sentiment on the top with flowers and moved them to the right to balance the buckle thingy.
