Gran’s Birthday

Hello Friends! I have spent a really lovely day in my craft room making cards, in amongst filling and emptying the washing machine and tumble drier! Unfortunately the house won’t run itself, but there are ways around it! The ironing pile is huge, but nevermind!!
Today’s card is for my kids’ Gran in South Africa. It has to go in the post so I have had to keep it really flat, so I have decided to keep it really simple too. The background paper is quite busy, so I didn’t want to put too much on the card. I have kept the colours quite neutral too, but I really like it! Let me know what you think…
Inside the card:

Thanks for joining in at Lili's Little Fairies this week Claire ...perfect take on the theme. I would never have thought to colour a fairy in those colours but it all just comes together really well. Good luck!
