Time for a fairy

I love fairies and it seems a while since I used one so out came this beautiful stamp from last year from Sugar Nellie. She has been softly coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with glitter added to the fur on her outfit and some highlights with a Sakura clearstar pen. The backing paper is from my pile of oddments. I think its from a candy I won about 3 years ago. The gorgeous glittery paper is First Edition Spring Feast. I added some blue sheer ribbon and a piece of old lace. The large Prima flowers were free with a mag subscription 3 or 4 years ago, not many of these left now. I added some small flowers from Michaels and silver brads from The Hobby House and a Memory Box die cut dragonfly.
