Passion for Promarkers Fantasy - Fairies and Mermaids

Sorry I'm so late posting my DT card for PFP today!  We had a lovely day down at Priory Farm to see where the Craft Barn had relocated to!  Such a great location - sadly for me they were still fitting out the new premises, and although we could look round, a lot of their stock was still in boxes - probably just as well with the hubster in tow but I did manage to buy one or two items!!
Back to my card and our theme at PFP as chosen by our lovely Cathy is Fantasy - so anything such as fairies,  mermaids, dragons etc!  
I used these two  gorgeous Crafts and Me images of the Moon Swing and Noon Fairy and merged them together. The images were chosen by my sister for a card she asked me to make for her daughter Hannah's 21st.  The  other requirements were to use red, and also to incorporate the sentiment which has a special meaning for my sister and Hannah.  Hannah also studied vetinary nursing at college so all the little woodland creatures seemed appropriate - they have a house full of animals too!!

When I sent the card up to my sister, she was really worried when she called to say that she'd received it but thought the postie may have torn it putting it through the mail box!  I was sort of relieved to explain that it was a design feature with a little heart tucked behind as you can see below! Other elements that I used included Memory Box heart dies, and some PTI flourish dies and stamps. There are also some Marianne Anja Rose corner and border dies.  Most of the other bits and pieces are from stash.

The papers are 7 Gypsies Lyon 12 x 12 papers.

Our sponsors this week at PFP are Letraset who are offering the lucky winner a set of the new Promarkers  Collection set.
