After the fiasco of finding one of my favourite dies a couple of weeks ago (see here if you missed all the fun) I realised how much I like it.  Not only is it really pretty in its own right, but the cut outs can also be used to create flowers (especially the largest one).  So this fortnight's 'favourite die' challenge at As You Like It Challenge is the perfect opportunity to dig it out again.

I'm also using one of my new LOTV fairies, painted with DI reinkers, and some of my lovely new LOTV papers.  The papers were quite detailed so I left the design clean and simple.  I think this little fairy is my favourite from the new release.  I hope you like it.
