Scilla the Fairy

Morning lovely peeps - hope you are well! I'm feeling good and will be attending my last two bootcamps this weekend - can't wait to get off this high protein diet but it has made me feel really well!  I'm very excited about the card I've got to share with you today- its all just come together nicely and I'm really pleased with it. It features a digi called Scilla the Fairy which you can get here Digital-Fairies from Crafty Sentiments Designs and I think she's stunning:

The verse is from the wonderful Barbara Gray - Clarity stamp. There's another thing - just booked on a miniworkshop with Barb at the Harrogate show - I'm so excited and can't wait to actually work with the lady herself.

Anyway - back to my card - My digi was coloured with promarkersand I've put filigree marks with a glue pen on the wings and then glittered them - I'm not sure if it shows up in the picture. The card is an easel card that I've covered with basic gray paper and added some very ancient skeleton leaves from my stash and some leaves I cut out from hunky dory toppers. I think thats all.
