Lilac fairy

I'm gradually getting around to playing with my recent LotV purchases .... I've still got a few to go and I know that some more are due out soon so I don't know whether I'll ever catch up with myself lol!!

This fortnight's challenge for BasicGrey #17 is a fab sketch, which made me think of pulling out the remnants of my BG "Wisteria" paper pad ... and the paper immediately made me think of teaming it with this gorgeous garden fairy.

I would also like to enter this card for the following:

Flutterby #105 - Open theme with a butterfly, fairy or angel.
My Time To Craft #87 - pretty pearls
ABC - S is for Sparkle (poor light doesn't show it up very well, but her dress and wings are VERY sparkly lol!!)
Quixotic Paperie #21 - Heavy metal (brads and large spacers)
Cute Card Thursday #108 - touchy feely. I have created texture with the rafia, pearls, spacers and flowers.

Main image: LotV, coloured with watercolour pencils and marvey markers, and dusted with glamour dust;
Sentiment: Lavinia Stamps;
Papers: BasicGrey "Wisteria;
Supplies: pearls, pearl brads and spacers from The Hobby House; raffia lace from Hobbycraft; flowers from my stash;
Tools: "labels 3" nestabilities; Bazzill Jewel Template "swirls and flowers" (for pearl swirls);Fiskars "Victorian" cutting blade.

Just a quick post today ... hope to have a bit more time to catch up over the weekend.
