Fairies and faeries.

Another sunny hot day yesterday so was able to enjoy a bit of sunshine then take myself of to do a bit more crafting.  Two deco book pages needed completing if I wanted to meet the May deadline - I hate being late for anything, and I have been missing a bit of inspiration for the recipient's theme which is fairies.

Don't have many fairy stamps at all so I tend to use the same ones and hope I'm sending them to a different person than last time.

Here's the first page.

A Crafty Individuals stamp and a few flowers on a sprayed and splodged background.  I love the calligraphy on the word stamp which is from Quietfire Designs.

The second is a different style and not quiet finished yet - I need your help.

Background is sprayed watercolour paper and the fairy and toadstool stamps are from Lavinia Stamps.  I cut off the fairy's wings and added some German scrap wings.

Question is do I leave it like this or add a little 'button?

What do you think?

Hi Ann.
I'd say less is more and leave the button off :-)

Hi Ann
I voting for with the button - think it balances out the composition with the fairy at the bottom left. Glad you are enjoying the sunshine & still squeezing in some crafty time !

Hi Ann, loving both your fairie cards. I'm not going to be much help as I'm rubbish at making decisions, I think it looks good with and without. xx

I am on the side of doing without the button, but love both cards and the sentiment on the first one is beautiful.
