From Fiber to Fairy

Okay, so I started with the cards pictured below.  The rules of the game were to create one project incorporating all the cards.  Anyone willing to accept this challenge? Please post what you come up with.
Next, I spun and dyed the following yarns and fiber

Finally, the end result was a beautiful spring time Colorado fairy I like to call Sekip Kaep (Pikes Peak).  She is very special and I am happy with the results.  I used Fiona Mc Donald's book Knitted Fairies to cherish and charm.  Sekip is a variety of patterns, but that is what is so cool about this book because you can let you can create your own fairies for all occasions, moods, or needs.  What would you create?  Challenge yourself and let your imagination go wild.

Let me know what you think.  Happy spinning and knitting!!!
