Blossom Fairy

Good morning!  It's Fairy release time at Some Odd Girl again!  I LOVE Kristy's fairies!  Have you been following along with the daily releases so far?  If you leave a comment on the release posts, you might even win one!  There are still two more fairies to come this week too!  

Here's a card I made with the new Blossom Fairy for Monday's post...

Isn't she gorgeous?!  The papers are from October Afternoon (two from 9 to 5 and one from Cakewalk) and also Jillybean Soup.  The Smile chippy is from American Crafts and the sentiment is from the Hey Kaylee clear stamp set.  The charm is from The Secret Garden on Da Wanda and the seam binding ribbon and twine are from The Ribbon Girl.  The button is from Doodlebug and the crystals are from Prima.

Here's a close-up:

Once again I forgot my notebook so I can't tell you the copic colours right now, but I will (I promise this time!) update with a list tonight!  I do know I tried a new skin colour combo with R00 as the base for a slightly pinker look.

Skin: R00, E11, E13, T3 and R20
Hair: G000, BG34, G05, G09
Dress: YR00, YR12, YR18
Eyes: B00, B04, B06
Magic Pouch: E40, E43, E44
Leaves: YG00, YG03, YG17
Flower: V12, V15, V17
Yellow bits: Y17, YR27

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Stamp n Plus: Anything Goes
{Pin}-spirational challenge: See challenge for inspirational picture
Victorine Originals Stamps: Buttons and Ribbons
Going Grey with Scrap Creations: Use something bought in the last 2 months (The October Afternoon papers and the Dear Lizzy chippy).
