Fairy with Flowers

I had a notion to play with one of my Lili of the Valley fairy stamps, so I inked up this little lovely and coloured her with my usual Promarkers, to match these pretty papers, which came free with the current issue of Papercraft Inspirations.  I love the colour combo of this pack and the matching chipboard embellies are nice too, the sentiment is from the embellishment pack.
 The flowers in the image have come out brighter in the photo than they are in reality, although they are fairly vibrant.
I've gone full on sparkly with this card, adding Star Dust Stickles to her wings, a good sprinkling of green gems, and glitter domes as centres for my punched flowers.  The foliage was made with a Marianne die and the punched border was made with a Martha Stewart punch.  Some lace, a button, and a pearl finish my girly card off.
