Glittery Flowers for a Birthday Girl

There was a freebie image of the fairy to help along the October Lily-Boo Too challenge! For their second month it is a sketch challenge:

And I made this Birthday card using papers from Funky Seasons - Cold Snap collection. I've lightly inked the edges in blue and doodled a line around the inner layer and also the triangle shape under the image.

The fabric flowers are from my stash - the hard glittery ones came from a mug swop I took part in - my sender was Sarah (hello!) and they fitted in with the colour scheme perfectly! And I wrote the name in my very own posh handwriting!

The image was coloured with watercolour pencils and the obligatory glitter glue on the wings. The image is quite apt really, as Emily does look a bit like her. Just without the wings. Although, probably as a 4 year old, she will have a set somewhere.
