A little birthday fairy

Hello and thanks so much for visiting! I should really be in bed right now, but I wanted to share a card I made earlier today.

I needed a birthday card for a little girl, and since the challenge over at LOTV is "Flower power" I decided to use this cutie from Lili of the Valley for her card. 



She has been heat embossed and then colored using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and a few copics.
The paper is from a pack that I recently picked up at Hobby Lobby, I believe they are by My Minds Eye, but I could be wrong. Did some machine sewing, and I embellished with some ribbon and twine, and a little button. I know I have just recently used this sketch on a christmas card, but I can't help but love it. I think it really shows off the image beautifully.

The sentiment is from the set "Celebration circle pennants" from Whimsy Stamps, it's been cut out using the circle pennant die, also from Whimsy.

Like I said, I followed the challenge theme over at LOTV (Lili's little fairies challenge blog) with the theme of flower power. They are also having a guest designer call. Would LOVE to get a chance to create with some more of these cute stamps, so I am trying my luck.  The challenge at C.R.A.F.T. is Children, so I am entering it there too. Charisma Cardz  wants to see things with wings, also at Crafting for all Seasons and Fab 'n' Funky the theme is "wings as well. Inky Impressions wants to see a card for a child, and then at
Celebrate the Occasion they want to see some twine and at least one button.


That should be all for tonight.
Thanks again for visiting!
