Sparkling wishes

   It is the first Sunday of the month which means there is a new challenge at Dragonfly Dreams. The theme is add sparkle and it is being sponsored by Lemon Shortbread.
   I had some leafy designer paper in my stash so decided to use it as the background for the fairy. I matted and layered it onto matching plain paper and white card. The fairy image from Lemon Shortbread is called sitting fairy floral. I coloured the wings and dress using Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens, the remainder being coloured using Spectrum Noir alcohol  pens. I cut the butterfly flourish from some of the plain paper using a Joanna Sheen die and then recut the butterflies from glitter card keeping in all the die cut pieces.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes
   Digi Designs - birthdays
