Who doesn't love fairies?


I used The Sweet Stop SSS54 sketch for this card.  
It just caught my eye for the perfect sketch for the fairy I colored.  I normally use pencil but I have to make myself use my Copic so that I can get better at blending with them.  I just am not good at it and I want to be!  Two of my favorite challenge sites Stamping 411Color Inspiration #120 & Stacey's Stampin Stage Curtain Call Color Challenge #27
had color challenges so close that I could incorporate them both -  Pinks, Greens, White and Cream. 
Pile it on challenge #16 said "Make It Sweet", you can't get much sweeter than a cute little fairy, can you?  The ABC Design Blog had a recipe challenge -  1 - Punch, 2 - Stamps &
3 - Embellishments.  Everything came together.  I used my Mar-Fa (I love to call her that!) Stewart punch- Latice, glittered up her wings and shoes just like all fairies should have.



I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday.  I have a HUGE SURPRISE for everyone but not til next week.. *WINK* *WINK*  Lets just say I was surprised.
