Friends are the sunshine of life

I hope you enjoyed yesterday's Totally Ladybug Tuesday - weren't the DT cards amazing, as usual!!  That Kerry is lucky to have such a fab and friendly team!  (I am sure she will agree, or else!)  And isn't it fab news about our new challenge blog starting from 2 November?  I am hosting the very first one so I'd love it if you could pop by and support me!

Anyhoo, onto today's card which is a lovely fairy friend one - the attention to detail to the Michelle Perkett Studio images are amazing - look at those flowers and leaves around the ankle, the perfect finishing touch! 

You can't really see it from the photos, but I've added lots of Glamour Dust to the wings and flowers - it shimmers beautifully!  I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
  • Crafty Ann's challenge - use a digi and favorite medium (Copics of course!)
  • abc challenge - F is for flowers (background and the delicate flowers on the image)
  • Sarah Hurley - colouring (I've already entered a card so I hope 2 is okay!)

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, sei Jocelyn paper collection

Stamps: Michelle Perkett Studio Juniper and Cecilia digi (got mine from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here)
ediums: Copic markers, Glamour Dust (on wings and flowers)
Accents: Paperchase ribbon
Tools: Tim Holtz border die, Corner Chomper, Nestabilities label die (inside card)

Hi Mary, thanks for yesterday, was great fun! Beautiful card from you today, the colours go so well together don't they. I like how you have rounded the corners on one side and kept square on the other. Can I ask how you made the front of the card that the backing paper is sitting on? Pami x

Hi Mary, in answer to your question, I have a Cuttlebug, would this die work? Does it cut the edge of a pre-scored card? Pami x
