A Darling Midsummer Night's Dream

July 15th and time for another Duel!
Paola and Heather chose Shakespeare's comic work as our theme and we are to use a fairy image and the red maple leaf in recognition of Canada's 150th anniversary.

Paola's kit had the most beautiful papers from Graphic 45's Nature's Sketchbook collection.  I wanted a style that could show off every side of the papers, so an easel card it is!  




Look at those pretty papers.  

Embellishments include Turquoise dots from American Crafts and gross grain ribbon by Stampin Up.

The red maple leaf is stamped with a Stampin Up stamp.  I sparkled the leaf and portions of the image with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

The image is a Cam & Chloe fairy by Hampton Arts.  It's colored with Spectrum Noir markers.










Paola included the beautiful leaf and vine die cut, which I mounted on top of one of the reverse sides of the DP.





Here's the card fully opened, where you can see the middle panel of the easel fold and yet more of the pretty paper.  I cut out one of the sentiments Paola gave us, colored it with markers and glittered the butterfly.



Paola: THANK YOU for such a fun theme and incredible papers and die cuts!  It was easy to get inspired by the kit and theme.

Oh, I almost forgot, we are to post which quote from Shakespeare we use the most...which is difficult because whether we know it or not we often use his words.  I guess I would choose "To thine own self be true".  Polonius' wise words from Hamlet.
