Fairy Dust

This is an ATC I made last week for a "Fairies, Fairies" swap on swap-bot.com. It is special because the background was a pretty little piece of paper that I received in a private trade ~ five months ago! I'm so glad I came across it again. (thank you Joyce!)

Since I posted this scan on my flickr account it's gotten a few requests to trade (sorry!), a couple of comments and 4 people marked it as a favorite! There's even a "Fairy Zine Award of Excellence!" So I thought you might like to take a look.

Maybe today is a good day to go through your paper collection and make a background from something a FRIEND sent you!

Trying again...blogger glitches! I love this card,most especially the bacground script paper! Did you tint it with turquoise wash? Gorgeous!

Thanks also for stopping by my blog. I updated it this morning with photos of work in my first gallery show!
