Birthstone Bestie Card with hand made orchids

Hello Everyone, 
I hope that your enjoying your weekend so far!!!

I have used one of my Besties Digi's and used one of my favourite colour combinations - Aqua and Cream/Brown.

Well, how is every one settling back into their normal routine, after the Christmas festivities?

Its the last weekend before returning to work, so I thought that I would make this card, I love the image its ever so cute!
She doesn't have a name, but is one of the birthstone besties collection, you can find her Here at Sherri's store!

I have used my lattice die to create the framed card and three layers of Maja Design papers from L&L Crafts.

I wanted to give it a winged theme, as it suits the fairy, so I used the wings doohickey and a tiny butterfly with a pearl body.

My lovely hubby bought me the orchid die for Christmas and these are my very first orchids that I have made and I am quite pleased with them.

I am still in love with the Tim Holtz Ideology Wording and have used dreams take flight, which fits my theme!

Thats all from me for now, enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.

Take care
