Birthday Fairies JULY

Here is the July fairy. She looks very cute as she sits watching the butterflies and the pretty delphinium flowers. As with the previous six there a few fractionals for detail, but she is fairly easy to stitch so will be a good choice for a July birthday card. Little pearl seed buttons could replace the French knots on her dress. Stitch her on 14 count white Adia or a 28 count evenweave.
