Blue Fairy

Another teamie at work has a birthday coming up and it's been designated my job to make a card. It makes it a bit more special I'm told. A card specially made for them.
This card is sparkly, girly and as cute as I'm going at the moment lol.
The image is from Papelitos Stamps. Coloured with promarkers and the wings were coated with stickles for extra shine and sparkle.

The edges then ink distressed with tumbled glass DI. Mounted onto glitter card. I loosely followed the sketch over at Deconstructed Sketches to complete.

The base paper has been in my stash since I started making cards 2 yrs ago from a "disney stack" Lace and silver ribbon as 3 strips down the side. Some flourish die cuts in more glitter card with some white feathers. White flowers with stickle centres and a stick pin. (Duck Pond Crafts). Some pale blue gems to finish.
All mounted onto dark blue card base.

The sentiment was heat embossed in silver and mount on more glitter card.

I would like to enter this into the challenges over at
Deconstructed Sketches - Their Sketch
Papelitos Stamps challenge - Shine
