The Paper Shelter (TPS) Challenge #89 - Fairies & Elves

Fairies & Elves is the theme for this week's challenge. I know I wanted the card to look cheery & bright so I chose to work with pretty reds, pinks, yellows & greens. I made a circle easel card out of Spellbinders - Grand nestabilities dies & chose to colour TPS's image - Fairies Tea Party. Here's how my card looks!

The circle easel card

For this card, I most proud of the background that I've created. :) I wanted to create a feeling that the fairy & elf are having tea in a beautiful & most magical place on earth. I thought that it will be cool to let the background seems as if they were sitting below a rainbow. However, you'll not see the actual rainbow but only the reflection of its array of colours.

The pretty fairy

The cute little elf

The fun & colourful toadstools
