Things with wings!

What a glorious day!  Beautiful sunshine, then Jake went to sleep for two hours and i managed to make this card/notelet holder.  I hope you are all having a lovely day and enjoy the rest of the sunshine this evening :o)

Here is the card
Side view (easle card)

Front view.
The backing papers used on this card are from the dove craft paper pack 'a piece of cake' they have been layered in brown and pink, and I have used my new Xcut boarder lace punch for the edging on the strip across the middle.
Top part of easle card.

The image is from Lili of the valley called 'fairies - on tiptoe' and I have had her for about a year or more.
I have stamped her onto a circle die dut from dove craft and used my nesties scalloped circle to back it.  She has been coloured with pro markers and I have added glitter to her wings and skirt.  I have used liquid pearls around the scallops .

The flowers have been made using Mariane creatable die cuts and so are the swirls.  I haveadded mini gems to the ends.

I hope you like it :o)

I will be entering this card into the following challenges Ice cream colours(strawberry and chocolate!)

Thanks for stopping by :o)
