Bright fairy

Good afternoon my friends and visitors, hope you've all enjoyed a lovely and relaxing weekend...I have! It's been very warm here and yesterday we actually managed to invite some friends round for a BBQ without it raining us out (or the case may be..!) We were still sitting outside at 10.30 pm without so much as a coat between us!!!
My card is one I made 'just because', I coloured the image whilst on holiday recently, along with several others and am just getting around to using them on cards. This beauty is a digi from Polkadoodles called Fairy Wings (aptly enough!). She's coloured with copics, glitter added to butterflies (you can see it) and more subtle Wink of Stella added to her wings (you can't see it!).
I followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, using a scrap of dp and scraps of cardstock in purple and pink. Was delighted to find the ribbon in my carefully and neatly sorted ribbon box (ahem...more like a complete tangle of jumbled scraps of ribbon and lace...but I knew it was in there somewhere!) a perfect colour match. The sparkly brad started life pink but a copic soon sorted that out!
Thanks for calling by, hope you have a pleasant evening and a great week ahead.
