Have a Magical Birthday


I bought this gorgeous LotV fairy a short while ago, as she struck me as suitable for occasions when you want a card that is pretty, but not quite so cute as you find with the adorable LotV girlies and bears.

This week the LotV challenge is a fabby sketch which I think suits this image perfectly, plus they are having a GDT call .. what's not to like??

So I quickly got to work and here's the result...


Recipe:
Main image: LotV "Freedom" coloured with Promarkers and liberally dusted with glamour dust; Sentiment: LotV sentiment circles;
Papers: BasicGrey "Wisteria";
Supplies: flowers from here & there including Prima large white flower, Wild Orchid Craft small roses, and local craft shop; pearls from Wild orchid Crafts; ribbon, lace and pearl strands from my stash;
Tools: small & large circles and Labels 3 nestabilities; Marianne D Creatables "flower swirl" die; Martha Stewart monarch butterfly punch.




Challenges:

LotV #88 - Sketch
Simon Says - Happy Birthday
Bunny Zooe's Challenge #10 - Happy Birthday With Lots of Pearls
Birthday Sundaes #1 - Anything Goes Birthday Card
Pile It On #12 - Pearls / Rhinestones / Bling

Charisma #11 - To Die For

(I have used gems, glimmer/glitter and ribbon)

That's all for today .. thanks for stopping by.
