All Occasion Card/Friendship Card Using Sweet Pea Mushroom Fairy June Progressive Challenge

Hi to all of my friends in Blogland.  It is another beautiful day in Southern CA; just a little too hot.  I hope everyone is having a fun summer.  It is flying by so fast.  It will be over before we know it.

It is time for another Sweet Pea Progressive Challenge using Karen Middleton's Mushroom Fairie.  This was a freebie if you entered their Progressive challenge Part 1 for the month of June.  If you didn't enter; you can still purchase this image at a discounted price and enter before the challenge ends on June 28th.  I know I am cutting it very close. LOL!

I used this adorable image and created an Easel card; which is one of my favorite style of cards.  I love that you can see the inside and outside at the same time; when it is opened properly.  It stands up as the picture shows. I glued two ribbons together; for this shimmer effect to match the colors/wings.

Use for Any Occasion or Friendship card
