Paper Sundaes Challenge "Winged Things"

It's good to be back posting a card for everyone to see, it's been quite a while since my last post!  I'm hoping I can get back into the swing of things and begin to post more regularly from now on.  The card I made is for this weeks Paper Sundaes Challenge "Winged Things".  We are again being sponsored by Stamp & Create & our design team was lucky enough to get to play with the new Wags n Whiskers Fairies line.  I used "Angelica" and think she is absolutely fabulous!
I coloured her with copics and then added a bit of glitter around her wings and the sash on her dress.  This image was so much fun to colour!  The design paper I used was by Dream Street from the Simply Stated line.  I LOVE this paper and have been hoarding it for awhile now so it felt good to use it!  I even brought out my sewing machine and felt brave enough to try something other than a straight stitch which was quite adventurous for me.  I love the look of it.  Other supplies used:  Glitter Paper cut out with scallop square nestie, Making Memories ribbon (another supply I've been hoarding -it's my absolute fave ribbon), & some rhinestones.  I didn't add a sentiment for the moment however I think at some point I will add on "Wishing you the Fairy Best"! 

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!  I've got a super hectic few weeks ahead.  I just signed my son up for cub scouts last week (which he absolutely loves) and I've been busy trying to get the pieces for his new uniform and now have to gather a whole bunch of supplies as he is going off camping in a few weeks!  I'm in a mad panic to get it all done in time, not sure how I'm going to fit this all in!  I'll definitely have to post a picture of him in his uniform once it is all complete!
