Fairy Happy 16th Birthday

I've been working on my husband's laptop lately. My computer is 7 years old and a bit knackered ( like me lol but I'm older than 7!) the USB plugs are playing up and the mouse doesn't work and you have to wiggle the plug for ages to get a connection for the printer to work. The problem is hubby's laptop is windows 7 and I hate the new word pad and as I've mentioned and it isn't an exaggeration I am pretty useless with technology . I love Windows 64 and on Word can whizz around do anything I like but I just can't get to grips with windows 7 at all. So this is why I printed my fairy image off so big and ended up having to make such a huge card.
 Half an hour later I managed to scale it down to a size I'm happier with. In the mean time I coloured the image in, because my mum always taught me practise makes perfect, and after I coloured it in I liked it, so I had to use it.

Well here it is

   I've used another adorable Saturated Canary digi I'm so totally addicted to these images. She's been coloured with my beloved Promarkers Look at those eyes you could drown in them and the cute lips remind me of my granddaughter Sophie.

I added a little design to her bodice I hope Krista doesn't mind and some white highlights with my souffle pen.

 As usual I've used pink petticoat papers ( I'm such a creature of habit)  and lots of different Spellbinders dies . The flowers are made from a paper from the Pink petticoat collection called Wild Blossoms I  printed off a sheet cut them out, curled them with scissors and added a gem from  my stash hey presto!

 A little lilac ribbon and a few other diamante . The sentiment reads Wishing you a Fairy Happy 16th Birthday. Hope you like it . Hugs Dea xxx
