Flutterby Fairy

Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and here in the UK we now have typical Bank Holiday weather as it's now wet and very windy.
I woke up this morning to find an email with the fabulous news that my AiFactory Baby Pram card was picked as one of five cards of the week at SNR Cardiverse and will be at the top of the card gallery for the next week. Really great news which is a lovely start to the week.
I've got a card to share with you today which was made from one of the lovely new Flutterby Fairy clear stamp sets from Polka Doodles which are really versatile as the fairy's wings are a separate design and can be used on their own as a butterfly.
The fairy I used is called Babsie and I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black then coloured her with Promarkers to fit my chosen colour scheme of orange and blue with a dash of red. I used Berry Red, Red, Carmine, Mango, Amber, China Blue, Cool Aqua, Sky Blue, Saffron and Dusky Pink.
I used the sketch from I love Promarkers which I do as I never used to like colouring until I discovered these.
The papers I used are from the new CD by Polka Doodles called All Around & Everywhere which came out just over a week ago on Create and Craft TV so you may be able to catch a repeat of the show if you haven't yet seen it.
I cut the circle and the scalloped circles using Nestabilities dies and added a sentiment from the CD, a flower altered to match with Garnet Twinkling H20 paint with a centre of a punched circle covered with a dome sticker and 2 small decorative dots also covered by dome stickers.
I'm entering this in the current challenge at I love Promarkers which is the above sketch and also at Incy Wincy Designs with a theme of Anything Goes.
