Lili's Birthday Fairy

Hello to everyone on another sunny, freezing cold day.  We are waiting for more snow to fall overnight and are not looking forward to it at all.  We nearly lost the conservatory roof on Sunday due to the weight of the snow and my husband had devised a system of brushes and boxes to support it, until he got it cleared.  Necessity is the mother of invention.

On to my card for today.  This features the very lovely stamp Birthday Fairy from Lili of the Valley.  The image has been coloured using my Pro Marker and Flex Marker pens and highlighted with Stickles.  The backing papers are from my stash and the card is decorated with ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and a mixture of cutting dies.  The large flowers have been made by me using Cheery Lynn Design mini rose and Spellbinder dies and the other flowers are from my stash and from The Ribbon Girl.  The leaves have been die cut and coloured with ink.  The butterfly is made using a Magnolia Die and decorated with tiny pearls.  The sentiment is a stamp from Lili of the Valley mounted on a distressed Spellbinder die cut.  I have used the soft shades of Spring to create the card.

I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges :o)
