Birthday fairy

This is my second post for today and this time I have used one of my favourite Pollycraft fairies. There is a gorgeous sketch at ABC Challenge where M is for Magical. I love sketches with lots of layers and have used Papermania Capsule and Forever Friends pink parfait. The colour scheme was inspired by the pastel challenge at Pollycraft. It was a bit challenging getting the lace through the loops but effective. The papers are so pretty that I kept the embellies to a minimum with pearls and a punched butterfly. Lots of glitter on the fairy of course. You can't have a fairy without glitter, can you.

I would also like to enter this into the challenge of pink and girly at Do it with digis, Birthday girl at Sarah Hurley and angels and fairies at CES.
