MAWTT - Use 4 items beginning with L

This is my first post for Moving Along with the Times when I'm acting as host. I chose the theme 'Use 4 items beginning with L'. I then had to start thinking of items beginning with the letter L - yikes! Who thought of this theme? Doh!!

I eventually settled on Label, Lace, Leaves, and Love.

My card blank is a large 8x8 square by Joanna Sheen. I've used an image, Forest Friends, by Teri of Delicious Doodles and coloured her with my Promarkers and added Sakura Stardust pen to her wings. I very carefully cut round the image. I used a mat of silver card and then topped that with a square of yellow Papermill card, embossed using a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder of leaves. Before fixing it to the card blank I wrapped a piece of light tan lace, from the local market, round the bottom and then put the image so that she is resting on the lace. I coloured a LOTV label with a Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and then raised it in the top left corner. To add to the image of woodland creatures I used wooden embellishments, from Create and Craft, of a snail, dragonfly and butterfly. I left them uncoloured and that was my card finished.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Digi Galore Challenges - Things with Wings
Craftyhands Challenge - Embossed Background
Delicious Doodles Challenge - Bloom and Yellow - the lace has blooms on it so I hope this counts.
QKR Stampede Challenge - Friends are Special
Card Mania Challenge - Use a Sentiment
Created with Love Challenge - Friends
Love to Create Challenge - Anything Goes

    1. A quick glance and you might think she's a mermaid.The wings look like a tail flipped up behind and the lace looks like waves! lol However, she's a fairy in the forest with her animal friends.
