Third Winter birthday card

Second card for the soon to be 50 year old. Found out she likes blue and fairies so this next one that I worked on in the week will fit the bill to a T.
Again, grateful for those preprinted images, this one is the newest from the Delicious Doodles range called Wistful Fairy. I used my sakura pencils in blues for the main image just picking up a few details in purple to add colour.

I followed another of the sketches over at Priscilla Styles' midnight madness, this one is #82.
Layered the image, after distressing the edges onto a blue distressed paper then onto a torn vellum layer. The little panel has a piece from a crafty individuals paper.
All this was layered onto an distressed, embossed layer with highlights in oil pastels. Then came the layers of lilac and navy. The ribbons from stash
Some distress stickles were dotted on to complete.

I am entering this into the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #82
