Silver Fairy

Good evening everyone,
First of all I would like to say a big hello and welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy visiting and can see something you like, I know I get lots of inspiration when I visit all you lovely people out there, so thank you for stopping bye!!
What a miserable day it is here in Yorkshire, very overcast and damp bbrrr!! but not me....I've been playing for a few hours (actually all day..still loads of ironing!) I've made a card for WOC challenge Blue and Brown.  I have used silver fairy by Sylvia Zet...I just love her images, and isn't this little fairy just fabulous.  I was doing a sketch for another challenge but missed the date, (story of my life lol!) so changed it a little.

A peek at the inside

Sorry the photos are so dark, tried taking it with a daylight bulb. It is a lot better but the papers are dark as well. I used blue papers from Barely Mine and the snowflake paper is memory box 'Yuletide'. The large snowflake is a Christmas decoration from Tesco's.  The beautiful flowers are from WOC crafts. The image is Sylvia Zet's Silver Fairy digi download, and I have coloured her with prisma pencils.  I have stickled everything with stardust stickles (gone a bit overboard..I think!) but it is really sparkly!!

Entering the following challenges:

Well my lovely ladies, it's time to go and get the tea on (home made spaghetti bolonase tonight, my hubby loves it. My best friend in South Africa gave it to me about 35 years ago (Wow!! so long ago) and I still use it to this day.  Have a lovely week, will be round to visit later.
Biggest of hugs,
