A wee fairy

Hello!  We are once again anchored in Mykonos rocking and rolling around in all the swell created by the many boats passing by.  The kids went out last night and only went to bed at 7.30am, so we are not likely to see any sign of them until much later this afternoon.  In the meantime we are all tip-toeing around trying to be as quiet as possible while we go about our duties.

Anyway... I thought I would take a break and post this card I made a few months ago for a Lilypad Lucy's Lovely Lines sketch but didn't post in time to enter it.

The image is from Lili of the Valley.  I think she's supposed to be a fairy, but I think she could be just a little girl having some fun and playing fairy dress ups.  Don't you love her pink wig?  I think she probably stole that from her Granny's closet.

I have coloured the image with copics (see details below) and added Stickles.  The main background paper is from Crate Paper.  The sentiment is a rub on.

I really loved this sketch... Lucy's cards are always so lovely and clean and simple and beautiful.  I think I will definitely use it again.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Here is a close-up of the little lady:

And these are the copics I used:

Happy Saturday!

Her granny might be looking for the wig later on tonight when she goes "swing dancing" so i hopes she puts it back in time :) I love Lili!
