Creative cottage DT card

Morning everyone! oops I'm a bit late this morn with my Creative cottage DT card, apologies it's my vain attempt to get fitter before the race for life in 4 wks so I'm attempting to jog a bit in the morning lol!
This week over at the creative cottage challenge blog we are asking you to create something with Fancy folds. That could be an easel, concertina, tent card etc or a bag, box or other altered piece. There is a bags of style easel kit up for grabs for one lucky winner and a chance to grab our favourites badge if you are picked! This week I have used the with love freebie that you can grab here and made a tealight card ispired over at Lena's blog you can grab the template for it here. It's a fab little present in a card. I am also entering this card into the creative inspirations challenge which this week is fairies! Lol I could do half a dozen cards for that one!

I made this card for a friend Clare, who recently sent me some clothes her sons had grown out of for my son, how fab! he is actually wearing one of the shirts today.

I have used this adorable digi image from TGF, another lovely fairy! The sentiment is SU. Pretty much everything else is the creative cottage freebie "with love". I popped in 4 tealights and tied it up with gold organza ribbon which I also used to tie to the 2 parts of the card together. Flowers are wild orchid crafts and everything is distressed with vintage photo.

Thanks loads and loads for popping by again, off to make something else now lol! hugs to all Rebekah x
