Lily of the Valley Challenge

Evening All!!
Hope you're all well. We've had a very dull and grey day here today, miserable actually. I was just enjoying the heat and it's gone, sob! Hope that's not our summer over lol! Today's card I have made to enter into the Lily of the Valley Challenge, they have such a lovely sketch to follow and I thoroughly enjoyed it! As I used the little tiptoe fairy I thought I should stick to pastel colours and instead of my usual pink I went with lavender. My dp's are all from Kanban, really good quality card stock and so pretty, have done some faux stitching but not showing up that well in the pics sadly. I have coloured this gorgeous little fairy in with my Promarkers and added some glitter on her wings and the flowers. I have used nesties and did the "out the box" technique with the tip of her wing. The sentiment is also from Lily of the Valley and the ribbon is from my stash.
The curly wild roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have sprayed them with Spray & Sparkle which is a silver glitter spray from Crafters Companion. The heart pin is also from Wild Orchid. I'll be entering my card into their brand new challenge too. I'd like to enter this card into the challenge over at Stamp with fun which is fairies.

Thanks for taking the time to view my card and for any comments you wish to leave. Enjoy what's left of the evening. Lotsa luv xxxxx
