Fairy Special Birthday

My sweet "new" daughter-in-law's birthday is coming up, so chose this fun and sweet fairy image from Mo Manning, following this week's Sketch Saturday's pattern. I came across some of my beloved DaisyD's (so sad they are gone)and chose one pattern with a secret message to my DIL (she's quite the artist - can you find the message?). Colored my image with copics and spritzed it with some "sparkle". I even took a crack at making ribbon flowers (she loves carnations - I think these look rather carnationy, don't you?), which was great fun.

Thanks for stopping by, leaving a comment and following my little blog.

RECIPE: Mo Manning-digi image; Sketch Saturday #173; bazzill CS; DaisyD's patterned paper; Hero Arts-lace; Sizzix-flourishes; Spellbinders-nestabilities; Tsukineko-sheer shimmer sparkle; LSS-gingham and velvet ribbons, SILVER rhinestones; Ranger-stickles/silver frost; copics.
