Birthday Fairy

I made this birthday fairy card for a birthday card challenge at Come and Get It Challenges. I used The Stamping Boutique's, the  sponsor of the challenge this week image called Birthday Fairy. The image was coloured with Copic Markers and a little Stickles glitter. The pattern paper is from my stash.

The sentiment I added is by A Muse Artstamps.  I think it is a perfect sentiment for this card.  To complete this card I just added some chocolate coloured bows with pearls and some pink pearls.

Thank you for stopping to take a look.
