Alva and Daisies


Pixies and faeries have just captured my heart lately. I've fallen in love with them and when one of my favorite companies, Magnolia, put out these cute little Alva's, I was hooked! I took one look at my Designer Team packet Summer from Roses on Paper sent me and I was a goner! Sitting Alva and Big Daisy are perfect to watch over the beautiful flowers that will be chosen for Valentines Day!

This adorable card was my contribution to the Roses on Paper Design Team Challenge being hosted by our really creative Anki for this round. She created a great sketch for us all to follow! You can see the sketch at our Roses on Paper Challenge Blog. Take a stroll over and see the other beautiful cards created by all the outstanding and talented members for Summer. Their links are on my right side bar. Stop by and look at their great creations! Make sure you play along and get into the running for some pretty sweet bucks to spend in Summer's store!

I hope you like my little pixie. She was so much fun to present. I'd love to peek into the batch of daisies she's hanging out in!

Card Ingredients: Alva Sitting, Big Daisy, Sentiment from Close to My Heart "The Simple Things" set, Distressed Re-Inkers, Prima flowers, Iced Stickles, Bittersweet paper and glazed brads by Basic Grey, spacers, Blue Moon heart charms, MS ribbon, corner rounder.
