The Ivy without the Holly

New image alert from Delicious Doodles and she is beautiful, of course. The Ivy fairy.
There are, of course, oodles of beautiful images but I just had to colour this one in as soon as I saw it. The hard part was prising son off pc long enough for me to post it.

See I told you she is beautiful.
I printed out a few other copies as well and after colouring with my promarkers, cut out bits to layer up.

I basically followed the sketch from over at Crafty Ann's. The challenge is sketch and/or monochromatic. The green organza ribbon was woven through the paper and the old lace was backed with moss green ribbon. A few silk ivy leaves and pearls to finish off.
Because I haven't decided on who will get this card, the space for the sentiment is bare. I like to personalise mine at Christmas.

I'd like to enter this into a couple of challenges
