A birthday card!

Yep even with Christmas looming - there are still birthday cards to make. This one is for a friend's daughter who is turning 13 in the new year. Another teenager!!
I thought she deserved a card that was a bit more grownup for this momentous occasion of entering her teens, though still girlie with lots of sparkle.
I used the gorgeous papers from Crafty Chaos' "Dancing with Fairies" range and an image from Delicious Doodles called "Free Spirit". The sketch is that from Fairymoon Crafts.
The image was coloured in using promarkers, with just a touch of purple stickles on the wings.
The dark pink backing paper was painted with a silver shimmer paint to give it that sparkle. I also added a touch to the fur of the wolf and the moon behind the fairy. The backing circle is from the citrus range of DCWV that was in my scrap box. A couple of lengths of ribbon and some gems to finish the card. I did use some border peeloffs just to finish the glitz, all on very pale cream, linen embossed card base.
I am entering this into the challenge over at Fairymoon Crafts as it is their sketch.
Also into the Delicious Doodles 2nd challenge - "Celebrations"
