I Caught A Fairy

Oh yes I did catch one... Would you like to see her?

I used an antique blue jar I had with a metal insulated lid. It really works well to keep her safe.

Dawn from The Feathered nest had patterns for sale on her blog -this one really grabbed my attention.

I wish I could have gotten a better picture but it just kept shining off the glass and the glitter on her wings.
I added a few embellishments of my own that she didn't have on hers.
This is the saying she included with the pattern, and fit the image so well. I made a tag with my antique lace I have been hoarding saving for a long time.
A lttle twine, beads, and Tim Holtz distressing ink made this craft really aged looking.
Isn't my fairy a cutie???
