Lunagirl Blog Challenge #4: Garden Fairies

Congrats again to the winner of the Bathing Beauty challenge: Entry #16 Anne!  
It's time to start submitting your entries for the next Lunagirl Moonbeams Blog Challenge: Garden Fairies!

I hope you'll have fun with this theme ... I have all kinds of images that would work ... butterfly wings and dragonfly wings, little girls and boys, faerie folk, all kinds of flowers and even floral backgrounds!  The Lunagirl Moonbeams Design Team has created some wonderful garden fairies as you will see...

This challenge (#4) will end at 11:55 pm on June 30 ~  The winner will be selected randomly (random number generator) and will receive a free Lunagirl digital collage sheet of his or her choice.
UPDATE: I've decided if I get 20 entries for this challenge, I'll draw TWO winners!

Be creative but stick to the theme (obviously) :)
Any craft or medium is OK,
No more than 3 entries from one person in each challenge, and
Please link back to my blog and/or on your site if you have one.

It's preferable that your entry be a new piece created for the challenge, but I'm not going to worry about that...  Of course I love if you use at least one Lunagirl product, but that's not a requirement!
Most important is have fun, get creative, enjoy vintage.

The Lunagirl Moonbeams Design Team -- Vicki, Michele, and Petra -- have captured some charming little garden fairies for their creations below.  I'm sure all will be freed promptly, but first they have agreed to pose here for your inspiration!  Create your own little garden fairy project and enter the Blog Challenge! 

Petra Berendsen
Petra Berendsen created this very lovely tag:
"For this project I first created the tag with patterned paper, the edges are slightly distressed. The tag is mounted on stencilled background paper. The lovely garden fairy comes from the Fly Away Home collage sheet. I used the pretty fairy in the red dress and one of the butterfly wings totally amazing in their colour. The project was completed with some ribbon, a stamped sentiment and some fabric flowers."

Aren't the soft colors and stencilled patterns perfect on this tag?  I love the musical page in the background.

 Michele Storms created these two gorgeous cards!

The backgrounds are so pretty, and I like the 3-dimensional elements in the second card.

The wings are from Lunagirl Fly Away Home collage sheet and Rainbow Wings I collage sheet, while the figures/photos are from Lunagirl Little Girls collage sheet.

Vicki Romaine
What a little sweetie pie on this card by Vicki Romaine!  This charmer is from Girls 1929, with wings from Fly Away Home.  She looks right at home in Vicki's bright garden background.  Doesn't she make you believe in fairies?

Please be sure to visit the design team members' blogs as well!

And of course follow Lunagirl Moonbeams to see more garden fairies and to share your own in the challenge!
