Friday Sketchers Challenge - Fairy Beautiful!

Hi all!
I had hoped to be back again today and here I am!  I had a fabulous morning browsing around The Paper Passion with Rosa - what incredible product - I was in heaven I tell ya!!  I was there for 2 hours and came away with some fabulous stuff and not breaking the bank account either! One thing I got, which I've been meaning to for ages, is a distressing tool.  As you can see I put it to work straight away on this card!  I started my colouring on the fairy last night and choosing papers too so it was great that it worked for the Friday Sketchers challenge today!
The stamp is a new image from Heather's Stamping Haven line by The Stamp Barn.  Isn't she adorable?  I love the delicate lines of the artist's drawing making the image very whimsical.  I chose aquamarine and beige as my colour combo which I really love together.  I coloured the fairy in with my Tombow markers and highlighted areas with my Sakura gel pens.  The flower is Prima and the beaded flower is K&Co - isn't it fab!!  I used a new Fiskars apron border punch and the MS branch punch finishes off the flower.
Well, the boys are out on play dates so I will take this 'quiet time' to sit down with a cup of tea and do some blog hopping and check out what you've all been doing!
Have a fabulous start to the weekend and hopefully see you back again soon!
Hugs,
Danielle x
