Fetch A Sketch Challenge 6 - Decoupage Fairy

I'm back with another post as today is the mid way in the Sketch 6 challenge over at Fetch A Sketch and you have nearly a week still to get your entries in.
Here's a reminder of the sketch:

Here's my card with uses Claire of Jellypark's cute decoupage fairy:


I printed out the fairy and cut out all the elements then layered them up with foam tape. I rubbed the back of the wings with a large embossing ball tool to give them a bit of shape then added the fairy to a circle of white card embossed with the Cuttlebug Paisley folder.
I chose a favourite paper, Basic Grey Lemonade and covered my card blank with a piece of floral paper having first rounded the corners. I added a layered central bar also with rounded corners. I finished off with a sentiment from Inkadinkado stamped on some of the patterned paper and cut out and some Prima flowers - I altered the colours to match with Promarkers - with button centres.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - P Is For Pretty Pastels
Totally Papercrafts - Cute With Buttons
Flutterby Wednesday - Anything Goes
My Mum's Craft Shop - Layer It Up

Thanks for looking,
Fliss xx

I just impressed to watch the papers from this paper pad and your image is colored so perfectly. You have a magic touch. You give your cards such beautiful details.

I planed to create one for my sister.

Hi Fliss
Isn't this just adorable and makes me :)
The high winds are here and not fun at all. Didn't have any internet connection earlier on and likely to go at any time.
