Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day to all you wonderful mums and grandma's out there, hope you have a good one.

Just quickly wanted to show you this card I made using one of FairyD's fabulous new fairy images,
her (Fairydoodler) images now not only feature at and but she has also opened a 'FairyD store' at so all her digi's can be found in one place.
I love faires, and just couldn't resist having a play when I saw this one (still trying to get wedding invitations done, and still easily distracted LOL!).
I've been meaning to post this since Thursday but have only just managed to get around to it today.

As usual she was coloured in photoshop, I also made all the papers, moon and stars myself, the vintage seam binding and star pins (covered in tacky glue and dipped in gold glamour dust, I also glued a couple of bugle beads to the pointy end as I am always worried about someone getting hurt on the point) are from The Ribbon Girl, rhinestones from stash, all the large stars are outlined with gold glamour dust and the fairy's dress and wings are liberally sprinkled with crystal glamour dust.

This card is suitable for the following challenges :

Pixie Dust Studios - fluttering wings
Crafty Purple Frog - anything but square
Charisma Cardz - bling and sparkles
Stamp Something - April's digi day- use a digi
Fairy Knoll - whatever!
Digi's with Attitude - anything goes
Card Makin' Mamas - embellish it
Bling it on - use digi image and bling
Ellephantastic - anything but square or rectangle
Catch the Bug - anything goes

Gorgeous card! The backing paper you made looks airbrushed and the colour scheme is lovely. I like the gem detail on the ribbon, very pretty. And the sentiment is sweet (though not sickly!)
