Flower fairy

It took me a while to finish this little beauty from Aurora Wings she's called The Green Fairy and I've chosen to do her in pale yellow surrounded by purple and lilac flowers.  I did this with ProMarkers then cut her out and mounted her onto some black card stock.  There's some glitter added to the very edges of her wings to make her more ethereal.  Here's a closer look at the image for you.

I've kept the card fairly simple as I wanted the image to be the main focus.

Added extras are some flowers and leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts, self adhesive gems, silver dragonfly beads, a silver butterfly bead and some liquid pearl in white.  I've only used one design paper for this card - some lilac paper from ili of the Valley.
