Wow - an update! This gorgeous Fairy from Phindy's Place won "Card of the Week" in the Embossing Challenge.
Thank you!
Hi lovely friends and bloggers - hope you are having a good week, wherever you are. I have caught some kind of bug, but I was determined to post my card before having an early night. 
My middle Granddaughter, Jemima,  will be 8 in a couple of weeks - she loves pink, purple and fairies, so this wonderful image from Phindy's Place is just perfect. I am entering this week's Challenge at Phindy's - Embossing (dry or heat).
I have embossed deep purple Bazzill card, using my
Eazi-Score Board and an embossing tool, to create the diagonal squares design. Pink gems have been added to the cross sections, and Phindy's Flower Top Fairy Rose has been coloured with Copics, cut out with a circle Nestie, leaving the wing-tips overlapping the circle (not as easy as I thought it would be)!!. 
SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the wings, and some flower lace around the edge.
I will, of course, personalise the card before giving it to my Granddaughter.
Thank you for popping by - Love to all who visit (hope you don't catch the lurgy)! ~
