A Magical Birthday Wish

Whilst catching up with the goings on in blogland, I discovered several challenges for things with wings .. .. .. both Truly Scrumptious and By The Cute and Girly, and then the Flutterby Wednesday blog have an open theme to include a fairy or butterfly on your project. So, I had a look through my LOTV fairies and decided to get this cutie inked up, then found the pretty butterfly paper from Cuddly Buddly which gave me a starting point for my Copic colours. As always I took an age deciding on embellishments, finding anything to match being a struggle, but I did have this aqua tinsel so wrapped it around the card and created a 4 looped bow embellishment. My flowers are Marianne diecuts with a couple of aqua gems from my stash, and that's about it.
I used these colours of Copics:
skin - E000, 00, 21 plus R00 blush
hair, teddy shoes - Y21, 28, E30, 31
lilac - B60, BV01, 02, 04
aqua - BG10, 11, 32, 34
ground - cool greys
shadow - B0000, 000, 00

I need to get myself organised so I can hopefully meet up with a couple of crafty friends this afternoon - so catch you all later!
