A Spring Fairy for One Stop Card Crafts .... and lots of challenges

Good morning peeps

What a brilliant few days we have had weather wise - just lovely.  I also had a fab day at LB Crafts and did a workshop with Lin Brown.  So what with Artsy Crafts and this day, there was defintely no Hobbycrafts show for me this week.

At  One Stop Card Crafts this week we are looking for Fairies and Angels.  Do pop across to have a look at all the fabby designs from our team - we have lots of new designers join us over the last couple of weeks.  Our sponsors this week are the fabulous Stitchy Stamps.  You will find lots of lovely goodies in their store.

As it has been so lovely, I decided that this card should reflect it, and you know how I love my Lili of the Valley fairies.  So I have used spring colours.  I have layered Bo Bunny papers on to Bazzill, and the red/yellow side are the reverse side of the yellow/white.  I have coloured with Copics and the wings of the fairy have been liberally covered with Stardust Stickles.  My flowers were in the bargain bin at Hollycrafts, and I have taken out the centre and added pearls.  The leaves and draonflies were cut with Doo Hickey dies, and the punching down the side has been done with a Martha Stewart Doily border punch.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Lili of the Valley - Punches
