Fairy Wishes

Few weeks since I last posted.  Our weather is getting better don't mind going outside the last few days.  Hubby managed to fracture two vertebrae in his back a few weeks ago and was in great pain for a couple of weeks, but with medication it is not so bad now, and he has managed to go to Wellness House today.  He usually goes once a week, but had a few weeks off.  Anyway while this was going on I seemed to have lost my mojo.  I did take time most days to stop by quite a few blogs to make comments - I always see such great awesome work from fellow card makers.

Finally got busy and made a card for my sister.  The image is from Fitztown, and I think she is lovely!  I have coloured the background with copics and have paper pieced her dress and wings.  Have added micro sized gold beads to the centres of the yellow flowers and Rock Candy Stickles and glamour dust to her wings.  For embellishments I simply added a velvet ribbon and a small butterfly from my stash. Sentiment computer generated.

I should mention that the large flowers were coloured with pink copics before I decided to paper piece them, they were just too pink and I decided to cover them.  And then it was a toss up a purple dress that I had cut out or the pink one that I ended up with.    Such big decisions!

This is a close up of the image:
