Pretty in Pink

Good morning everyone - hope you're all well and enjoying the weekend. I haven't been posting the past few days as I've had a rotten cold for over a week now, and had to take a couple more days off work as my nose was (and still is!!) so blocked I couldn't breathe properly and it was sending me light-headed - lovely!! I've been feeling far too lethargic to feel creative ... but at least it's now the weekend, and here at last is a card.

I do so love this sweet fairy with her cute dandelion clock :-) Hopefully this closeup at least hints at the sparkle I've added!

I also managed to make my puffy bow turn out quite puffy for once, which in my mind tied in to the generally light and fluffy theme of this card.

Stamps: LotV "Dandelion Clock"; scroll from LotV Geisha Companion Set; sentiment from Sentiments to Fit Scroll;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; liberal dusting of glamour dust on image and Stickles on flowers; dots of Liquid Pearls on image;
Papers: LotV "Nitwits - Perfect Pair";
Supplies: most flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; button from The Ribbon Girl; large rose, various gems and organza ribbon from my stash;
Tools: Simon Says "Harrington Vine" die.
