Gothic Arch Challenge


This weeks' challenge at Gothic Arches is "Garden Sprite." I found this image in a small address book I found at a thrift store. The book is filled with different images of garden fairies.
I knew some day I'd need one, so I'm glad I picked it up.
I made a card out of my arch this week. The background stamp is from StampinUp.

I've loved 'The Flower Fairies' by Cicely Mary Barker which is what they are since I was a child and this is a lovely use of this image!
