Creative Fingers Challenge – Fairytale

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

2Timothy 1:7

Today’s card is made for Creative Fingers Fairytale challenge.  I took my inspiration for this card from a Disney storybook that I had as a child.  At the end of Sleeping Beauty, the fairy godmothers were arguing over the colour of Briar Rose’s wedding dress.  One wanted it pink and another blue.  They each used magic when the other wasn’t looking to change it.  So here she is, with her dress magically changing – do you see the sparkles of magic dust?  Yes, I have regressed to 6 years old…sigh…

The lettering is from a Forever friends range at DoCrafts and the papers were free with a magazine.



Here are today’s challenges: – favourite things – anything goes – birds – anything goes – glitter – dazzle – sparklr it up – glitter and sparkle – just a fairytale – feminine – anything goes – anything goes – film or song (Sleeping Beauty) – anything goes

The digi stamp used is avilable from Scrapper’s Delights and don’t forget to enter the Creative Fingers Fairytale challenge.

If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.
