Emerald Faerie - Isabella

I can't believe I have only just found these gorgeous images from The Emerald Faerie Garden, they are so cute. I have used the Isabella(digi) stamp, and here is a closer look..........

I have tried something I have seen on other cards - the shine down the front of her tights. I have used a Spellbinders die and then I went round the outside of the die for the layer underneath which is whitewash Core'dinations. Sje has been coloured with Promarkers and then the wings are glittered. The border is an EK Success punch out of pink glitter card. The swirl is a Marianne die. I made the flower using three different sized circles out of the same DP and whitewash card. I dietressed the edges and shaped them and just free handed the leaves - with added glitter for the veins. The DP is a First Editions pack called Spring Feast. Finally the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley - a sentiment set called Dreamy Days. Oh and how could I forget the button at the centre of my flower - from the Papermania  Capsule collection.

I am entering the following challenges:-
