Crafty Creations - Fables and Fairytales

Deena chose a "novel" theme for us all this week "Fables and Fairytales"!  We are sponsored by  Meljen's Designs and were given some cute images to work with....I loved this lil character and chose him!

Although, I must admit, this theme had me stumped!  First I thought i could try and make a castle for him...but he's a dwarf so the castle thing wouldn't work....then I thought I could make him a lil cottage....but I made the haunted house last week....so then i thought I'd have him out searching in the forrest for Snow White (obviously that's why he is unhappy....)  so I made this 3D card!!

I thought these Basic Grey papers were perfect for the "forrest" look; the fringes represent the foliage he has to trample through; the scrap of "net" and silver embellishments represent the "things" that dangle in a forrest (i'm not sure what they are exactly but there's always things "danglin'" in the forrest in the movies lol

So that is my lil project for this week - I ended up having a right laugh at my efforts, but that's part of the fun!! Please pop across to Crafty Creations and see the fab projects my teamies and our guests created and details on our fab prize!! bx
