Forever Young

List of challenges used for this card:
Cute Daisy May - Fairy-nuff
Splendid Stamping With the Greeting Farm (Farm Fresh Fridays) - Sketch
Just Us Girls - Paper Piecing (I paper pieced both the fairy's outfit as well as Peter Pan's)
Whimsy Stamps Challenges - Get Punchy

This card is a big one! I wanted to try a big 5 1/4" x 7 1/2" card, but decided after making this that I don't like working with the big rectangle cards. At least not quite that big! There's just too much space to fill! Maybe it would work better with different layouts, I'm not sure. Anyway, I used the fun stamps from a set called "Never Ever" made by The Greeting Farm, paper from Die Cuts With a View and K&Company, some hemp for my bows, and just some brads I got from JoAnn Fabrics. What do you think? Did it turn out all right? (You gals make my day each time you comment and I've been meaning to say, "Thank you!") :)

  12. I think you did a great job with it. Every space does not have to be filled to the brim. Sometimes a little empty space lets the eye be drawn to other things. You did a terrific job with this!
