Fairy fun on Friday at The Outlawz

Hello all!
     Time for another Friday challenge from the Alcohol Markers DT at The Outlawz and our theme this week is Fantasy and Fairies.  The March Challenges are being sponsored by Elisabeth Bell.  One randomly selected participant will win 2 selected digis from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  One of the images you could win is the one I used for my card this week - a sweet little fairy.
                   As usual, I coloured the image with Copics and then set my Silhouette Cameo to work, cutting out some floral bits and butterflies and welding the words 'Happy Birthday' to a circle, offsetting it to get the backing circle surround.  I'm guessing this means nothing to you if you don't have a Cameo so apologies for that!
     This is quite a frou-frou card for me but I still managed to keep it fairly simple by just using 2 colours of cardstock for the die-cuts, matching those with the Copics colours as best I could.




      Here's a close up of her wings which I glittered up  - it's quite difficult to see on the main picture.


      Please take some time to visit the rest of the DT's fabulous cards  - Linda, Penny, Kathi and Carla.   Thanks so much for stopping by!
