where the heck did March go?!

LOL- it's been a while! we've been crazy with oral surgery, a fabulous trip to NYC, joining a soccer team, signing up for school next year and at least 20 other things i can't remember at the moment! i will have a long picture filled NYC post soon- but i have over 10 gazillion photos to view & edit first ;)
it's been forever since i had even a moment to create something but i stayed up late last night & caught up on the last MFT WSC challenge which was to make a patchwork card (i'm only 2 days late- could be worse right?! the challenge was so fun & used up some scraps- LOVE that!
click images for a larger view!

i stamped Jolinne (Fairy Sweet) on an MFT creme paper panel, paper pieced her dress with some Basic Grey Sugar Rush paper scraps, colored her with copic markers and added the fabulous glitzy glitter to her gorgeous wings. i also added a clear swarovski crytal to her necklace. i cut her out & popped her up up up on top of a cute green nestie shape. i patchworked a bunch of BG Sugar rush scraps with my sewing machine to the yellow banana split cardstock (also by MFT), and added my favorite hoarded embellies- the glittered garnishes (From the Spring adornments-here'a link you'll want them too LOL!)

popped way up:

& a closer look at the sweet fairy girl:


for the inside, i used more scraps- a piece of the patchwork i had left after sewing and the yellow and the green- i added the boarder with my Fiskar's threading water punch. I used a circle punch to make a hole to hold a little gift card. i love how this one turned out & i think i'll pop a little target or visa gift card in it & send it off to my sister in law- the sweet image makes me think of her!
OK gotta run need to pick up a refill propane for the grill and some steaks- Momma's busting out some Blue Moon ale (or chardonnay depending on how the afternoon goes!) & getting her grill on tonight! Woo Hoo!

those wings look great and your sewing looks excellent.
scraps were another thing I didn't take along for the ride so I sat this challenge out. too bad you're late I think this card would have be a contender.
