Fairy Tales Do Come True

Hi there!  It's me again with a second post today.  Crazy, I know, but I've had a bit of "waiting around" time the last couple of days, so I've had a chance to finish coloring some images and making them into cards. This is another for a few challenges I like doing when I can find the time.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Not Quite Navy and the patterned papers are from the FabScraps Blue Heron collection.  The gorgeous image is Lovely from Saturated Canary.  You can find her in Krista's store here.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Turquoise and Star Dust Stickles to the turquoise parts of her dress to make them shimmer.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I added a triple-loop taffeta bow and a little metal dragonfly charm.  Some Wild Orchid Crafts roses and a spray of purple crystals finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful evening and I'll see you soon!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Sketch 'n Stash # 116 (sketch)
The Squirrel and The Fox #46 (use something metal; I used the dragonfly charm)
