Silver fairy

Morning all, its still bitterly cold here, but at least its dry.  This card is for my sons girlfriends birthday, but I suppose it could be a christmas card because of the image.  I,ve used the beautiful siver fairy from whimsy.

Apologies for my photo (I'm still no better with the camera) the flowers look yellowy cream, but are in fact, white & lilac. 
The backing papers are from a free xmas cd rom I found (and never used).  I,ve used a crafters companion embossing board to create the frame around the fairy & a martha stewart punch to create the layers behind.  Ribbon & gems from stash & flowers from wild orchid crafts.  The corners & flourishes are all marianne dies & I,ve used loads of stickles, snowtex & glamour dust, don't think it shows very well tho :)
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges :-

Papersundaes  -  Winter wonderland
Digi Doodle Shop  -  Lots of Sparkle
Mariannes Design Divas  -  Sparkle & Shine

Thanks for taking the time to look & any comments you may make.

Hi Maria :)

Gorgeous card hun, your sons GF will love it! Super use of dies, flourishes and punches (my kind of card! LOL!) :D

Cute image and your bow is so neat!

I always try to photograph my projects on the windowsill in the daytime and turn off the flash, it does stop the yellowing. Alternatively if you have a daylight bulb that helps negate the flash. I usually edit my pics in Adoble lightroom or something if the pics dont look true to the colours as I see them. Its a bit more of a kerfuffle, but it works for me :)

Have a smashing weekend,

A beautiful card Maria, just love this fairy! Am so glad I found you again. Am following you - but for some reason you're not coming up on my blogger dashboard! (Lots of other blogs I'm following aren't coming up either, don't know how to sort it!)
