Thistledown Fairy for Mum

Hello Everyone, 
I haven't had much time today as I've been helping in school making hand puppets. I did manage a quick card this morning. 
It started off life for the Lilies Little fairies challenge of peaches and cream but ended up being more orange and green! This was because I couldn't find any pretty peach papers or any peach or cream ribbon....wish list has grown!!
I've used thistledown fairy from LOTV. (one of my Mum's favourites!)
I've coloured with my promarkers and added lots of glitter to her fairy wings, and liquid pearls to the flowers.
I've used a MB cherry blossom die, a Marianne Creatable fence die, a whimsey corner die and the leaves are from a Mb Fabulous Phlox die.  I finished off with a bit of ribbon and a few pearls.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Lilies Little Fairies - Peaches and Cream
Love to Create - Pick 2 (Ribbon and Pearls)
Cutie Pie Challenge - Magical
Cupcake Craft - Sparkle
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes Option Mothers Day
Passion for Promarkers - One for the Ladies
Allsorts Challenge - For a lady
Creative Craft Challenges 2 - Mothers Day

Thank you for visiting my little blog today and for all your lovely comments. Lorraine x
