My First Mother's Day Card

I was so chuffed when this week's Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge was pink and grey, as I realised that I have loads of blue/green cards and absolutely no pink ones!

I chose my papers: First Edition Summer Bloom, and decided that I really needed to colour this gorgeous fairy again!  She's called Hello Little Friend and I love colouring her and her little rabbit.  This time, I've used polychromo pencils and Stardust Stickles.  I was a bit bold and used a little black on her socks too.  I sooooo love using the pencils - I love the effect and find it soooo relaxing!

I followed the Sketch Saturday sketch and deliberated on what embellishments to use...3 flowers? nope, too much..... a swirl?  none big enough....letters?  YES!  So it is my first Mother's Day card!

And I would love to enter the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Colour bingo - pink, grey and yellow (hair)
Papertake Weekly - Happy Highlights (Wings, wand and letters)
