Autumn is Here

Good Morning & A Happy Sunday to you all!
It's time for the latest challenge at The Crafty Pad this week!
The theme chosen by our lovely Pauline, is
Here is my little offering!

The image I have used is Fairy Chloe on Mushroom.
I have coloured her with a mix if Flemarkers & Promarkers.
I cut out the image with a circle nestie & matted onto a
scalloped circle.The punched border was done using a 
Martha Stewart Doily punch

Here's a closer look.You can just about make out the Diamond Sparkles 
I have added. The DP's are from Lidl & one is pre glittered.

I decorated the inside of the card to reflect the outside.
The panel is a little smaller as I was using up some scraps.

The side view!

Side view of the outside. The ribbon is from a local haberdashers
& you can see I have added some gems in the top corner to balance the card!

The greeting is computer generated using a font called Faerie.
Emily, her sister & her mum all love faeries!
Our sponsor this week is
