Live Laugh Love

Good Morning Everyone
The house was so quiet yesterday as the kids have gone back to school. I managed to go for a run and get some time in my craft room! A bit of housework would have been a better use of my time but...hey ho!! I decided to use one of my favourite Sugar Nellie fairies for today's card. This one is called 'Live, Laugh, Love' 
I've coloured her with promarkers and added lots of glitter to her fairy wings. The background papers are Victorian Classic from the Paper Cellar.
I've added a few liquid pearls to the flowers and a Crafts too fence die.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
The Sugar Bowl - Fairies
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers - CAS
Loves Rubber Stamps - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Wings
Inky Chicks - Anything Goes

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today and for all your comments and encouragement.
