A fairy card for Holly...and some news!

Hi folks!
Hope you are all well and making the most of the gorgeous weather. I had a bit of Crafters block last night...always happens when you need to meet a deadline. I'm due to take this card to a friend at work today and I just could not get started with it. As it is I'm not too happy with the colour of the fairy's dress... it should have been a much paler cream.
I ended up seeking inspiration from the following challenges. The Pink Elephant for the sketch, Cupcake Challenges for my distressed edges, Cute Daisy May for the heavily glittered and textured frame, The Saturday Challenge which is one for the girls, for Stamp Something I used one of my favourite paper collections and finally my signature flower punches for Pile it on.
My latest digi stamp Collection 'The Rock Chix' is available now here!

Also if you would like to see who made the top 12 in our recent Sketch Saturday DT call then look here.
Ciao for now!
