Funky Fairies No. 25

Two cards in one day, must be on a roll!

A sketch to follow over at Funky Fairies this week, which I enjoyed as it was a bit different from the norm. Not too sure about the finished result though, it seemed like a good idea but I don't know if it's a bit too busy, there's something not quite working for me - hmm.

Anyway, I've used Funky Fairies Garden set for the papers, scalloped circles & butterflies and I don't know if you can see in the photo but I've made little antenna using wire & beads as I had to cut out the butterflies & couldn't cut around the antenna. I've used some SU! Gable Green cardstock, which matched perfectly and the corners are from a fancy Cuttlebug square die, which I've cut in half. I've also embossed the centre piece of card, using a floral embossing folder.
