Flower Fairy Birthday Card

Good evening all! I hope you're all well!
I made this card for my nieces birthday & I forgot to post it to my blog!
Before it disappears in to the ether I thought I'd let you have a little look at it!
The Flower Fairy image is from a die cut decoupage sheet.
Such a lovely image & my niece is into fairies in a big way!
It was also a refreshing change not to use promarkers! lol

The fab DP was part of a lovely candy I won as was the die cut oval!
 I think the layout was from my minds eye.
I only had one sheet of that paper so I know I had to make it work! lol!
The pink mat was punched along the bottom edge with a Martha Stewart border punch.

The fairy was a perfect fit for the oval & I distressed the edges with an inkpad.

The sentiment was computer generated, sorry I can't recall which font I used!
I added a homemade posh pin, a double bow & a few self adhesive pearls!
Thanks for looking, I do hope you like what you see!
Don't forget there are only a few days left to enter my Candy Draw!
