Good morning everyone, 
Gosh I'm early today!! We are heading across to the 'other side of the Pennines' tonight to help celebrate my In-Laws 50th wedding anniversary. Lots to do before we can set off, and Hubby has just finished a night shift and is now snoring his head off!! I thought I might as well make a card while I got the chance!
I've used a Sugar Nellie stamp, one of my favourites. This is Charlotte! I've coloured her with my promarkers and of course added lots of glitter to her fairy wings!
I've followed the sketch at the Sugar Bowl. (Sorry for the wonky photo!!)
The background papers are from First edition and the Butterflies are a Marianne Creatables die and a Martha Stewart Punch.
I've finished off with a few pearls and a bit of ribbon from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following Challenges:-
The Sugar Bowl - Sketch with Optional Butterflies
Penny Black & more - Whiskers or Wings (2nd entry)

Have a lovely weekend, and thank you for taking the time to visit me today.
