Away with the fairies

This week's challenge at Willow Sketchie Challenge was to add sparkle/shimmer, something floral, use the colour yellow and follow the set sketch.

This is my card:

I decided to use yellow as my main colour theme and use papers from Funky Hand. I downloaded the cute fairy from Willow Designs, I've never used a fairy image but I particularly like this one!

I sparkled the wings of the fairy using Cosmic Twinkles.

I'm really pleased with the finished result and this card is now for sale at B'dz, Todmorden.
