Fairy special friend

Used my lovely little fairy image again from Charmed Cards, she is coloured with water pencils, copics and distress inks. I have added lots of glitter for that fairy sparkle. The sentiment is also from Charmed Cards and I used my nestie to cut it out.. I used an MS punch for the border, added some ribbons and made a little charm for the age number to go on. To finish the card I used one of my handmade flowers. Its made from an old dictionary, punched using a retro punch and a MS punch and finished with a pearl.



I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Sketch and stash - followed their sketch (new stash is papers from Creative Cardmaking)
2. Simon says - things with wings
3. The Crafty Pad - recycle (used my old dictionary)
4. DieCutDreams - make your own flowers
5. The Pink Elephant - aqua
6. Pollycraft - make your own flowers
7. Dotties World - texture(scrunched paper flower, ribbons, glitter)
