Childhood Memories

Our challenge at Make My Monday this week is Childhood Memories and I have made this card with a couple of memories in mind.
My colour scheme is influenced by a story I loved as a girl about a fairy who couldn't decide what colour she wanted her room and kept changing the walls until they disappeared.
Secondly, I had an English Teacher who firmly believed she had fairies living in her garden, and why not.  I would love to think I might have some.

My parchment butterfly was made using a Pergamano Multi Grid and coloured with Versamark and Mica Powders.

My background is painted in some of my favourite colours, particularly green and pink together.
I hope you will pop over and have a look at the other DT makes and join in this week, sharing your childhood memories.
