Fairy Friends

I love this Penny Black stamp, it reminds me so much of my sister and me when we were children, I'm the one with the pigtails, my sister's the one with the bob.  I would like to point out, however, that neither of us has ever had wings or unfeasibly tiny legs!
The stamped image has been coloured with my Promarkers and I added some Star Dust Stickles to the wings, you can't have fairies without a bit of sparkle!  The sentiment was done with a Lili of the Valley stamp, I thought it went well with the image.
The papers I've used are DCWV The Kidlet Stack, some of which are beautifully glittered, I really love the colour combo of this stack.  I added black mats to my layers to make the colours pop.
The doily and flowers were made with Xcut dies using papers from the same paper stack as the mats, I added some upturned Card Candi and green pearls to the flower centres.  The foliage was made with a Woodware punch, I'd be lost without that one as it's so handy.
To finish my card I've added my usual ribbon and bow, but this time I've layered the ribbon with some lovely metallic rickrack and topped the bow with a resin flower.
