Happy 50th Birthday

hello friends.
wow - where has the week gone. it doesn't seem like 5 minutes ago I was posting my last card which was Saturday! And to cap it all off its September tomorrow! The year is flying past us so quick.

Here is today's card.
This is a commission card for a 50th birthday for a lady who loves fairies. Now I told not to use a  sexy fairy and I went through all my images and stamps and decided this one from Lili of the Valley was perfect. She is called Fairies - Bouquet - she was one of 20 images that were in a magazine freebie several months ago. In fact LOTV have allowed 2 sets to be available with the magazine which I think was Papercraft Inspirations. I find the LOTV images very versatile and easy to colour in.

Here as always I have coloured her with my copic pens and added glamour dust and glossy accents to her wings.

 The die cut flower and the swirl were a kind donation from Chris of ChrisAndCat on Docrafts. The date sentiment was from Kerry aka Pickle on Docrafts. The backing paper was from my digi stash which I printed onto pearlescent paper. Butterfly was from an Xcut punch also printed onto pearlescent paper but coloured with chalks. Gems, dragonfly and flower centre from stash. 

here is the date sentiment  

 I changed the date number to purple to match everything else. The month and year match the sentiment using Francine Hmk font

The flower die was from ChrisandCat - I used a purple brad for effect and a dragonfly from stash.

here is a close up of the fairy herself

thanks for dropping by and I would love to read your comments.

hugs to you all
