July Challenge

My research about this month for inspiration led me to the birthflower for July which is either the Larkspur or the Waterlily. Nobody seems to be able to narrow it down so in searching for a picture of either a Larkspur or Waterlily I came across this wonderful image of the Larkspur Fairy.

Isn't she lovely?  This single picture made my mind up about the challenge for this month. 

Your challenge is FAIRY in whichever way you wish to interpret it. 

As usual you may enter any craft you like - cards, scrapbook pages, knitting, sewing, embroidery, crochet, whatever takes your fancy.  Entry is by inlinkz below and entries close at 23:59 GMT on 31st July 2010.

I will chose an entry at random after that date as the winner.  Good luck everybody and here are some more fairies as inspiration

Etsy again showing that fairies can be for boys too
