Sweet Fairy...

Good morning!  Last night I had some free time and I made a couple of cards for some challenges.  I must be slow though as it took me about 5 hours just to make 2 cards!  

I just got my new Sugar Nellie Fairy stamps from Funky Kits this week and I had to ink one of them up, especially when I saw Joey's gorgeous card!  I had a quick look at the challenge blogs and decided to use the sketch from The Sugar Bowl this week and my favourite copic colour combos for the Mad for Markers challenge.

Here's my card:

The papers are from Crate Paper and October Afternoon and I have coloured the image with copics (see details below).  I have added Stickles to her wings and to the snow flakes.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the charm is from The Secret Garden on Da Wanda.  The pearly blingy swirls are by Prima and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

My favourite copic colour combos are the ones I have used here:
Reds: R30, 35, 37, 39 (I also love the 'Christmas red' combo of R21, 22, 24, 29 and 89)
Blue Greens: BG0000, 10, 53, 45, 49
Yellows: Y000, Y00, 11, 17
Blonde hair: YR30, YR31, Y28 plus I think I added a touch of YR24
Skin: E0000, E000, E00 and R20

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Sugar Bowl: Sketch #69 (I don't really like green so I had to pass on the optional theme)
Mad for Markers Monthly Challenge: Favourite copic colour combo

Here are the copics I used:

Gotta run... work is starting now!
