My Mo Manning Fairy Obsession Continues - more practice with my Spectrum Noir Pens

Hello to everyone and Happy Sunday.  I hope this finds you well.  
The weather is forecast to be fine here and we may be bramble picking later today.  
My younger daughter has a fancy for some bramble crumble and we saw some lovely specimens on the local heath the other day.  
We also found a pear tree dripping in fruits, so off we will go.

My obsession with Mo Manning Fairies continues. 
 I had purchased this fabulous image Summer Fairy Finna  recently and have not had time to colour her until now.  
She is a real beauty and has been a joy to colour.
  I am concentrating on colouring using my Spectrum Noir Pens and I am really happy with the results. 
 Coloured on Neenah Classic Crest Card - Solar White with some beautiful Shabby Blue Frantage detail.

List of Materials used to make this Birthday card:

Wonderful image as detailed above coloured using my Spectrum Noir Pens and with some pencil detail.  I love the bright blues and greens on this card.
Image cut using Spellbinder oval die.
Designer Papers are from my stash.
Easel card base is Centura Pearl Card.  
Other die cuts are label with wonderful free butterfly sentiment from StampArt by Kathryn.  
Butterfly die cut, Marianne.  Leaves are Ivy from Crafter's Companion and I am really finding this invaluable.
Have used a Spellbinder border die - Spades on top and bottom of card.
Flowers and ribbon are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

 Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my creations.

Sending hugs to all,
