Strawbeary Fairy Card

Good Friday morning to you. Hope you're looking forward to a wonderful weekend. Today I have for you my second project as Meljen's Designs June Guest Designer. Since I hope to be making strawberry jam this week, (some of which will be given as gifts), I decided I needed to make up some cards and thought that Melissa's sweet image "Strawbeary Fairy" would work perfectly. I gave this card a distressed look by using a distressing tool & inking all the edges. I think the real stitching, buttons, jute cord & frayed muslin tag add to the distressed look. Brads are MME, I think. I bought the flower layers at Michael's. After colouring the image with Copic markers I added a bit of glitter to the swirls. 
I hope you will take a minute & check out the cute images offered at Meljen's Designs, you can find them here:
