Fairy Swansong

With all the vibrant colours people are using at the moment, I felt inspired to make this birthday card for a few challenges, using an image I chose as a prize recently. The image is called " Swan Song" by Tracy Malinofski, and is available from The Stamping Boutique.

The dp's are from the Wild Blossom collection by Katie Knight. I have coloured the image with promarkers, and the flowers I made myself from white felt. I cut them with an old cuttlebug die, and then coloured the felt with my promarkers. (just dab the ink on as it will spread as it drys). Some faux stitching and a little diamond stickles to finish. :D

This card was inspired by the following challenges;
Flutter By Wednesdays#143 Anything Goes(must inc butterfly/angel/fairy)
Fab n Funky#61 Recipe 1 image/2 embellies/3 papers
ABC challenge# O is for Oval (only 4 other challenges)
Creative Belli#111 Use Felt/fabric (forgotten stash,old papers and flower die)

Enjoy :D XXX
