WOW! Fairy in Lavender and Lace

Hi Everyone, when is the sun going to come back, this dull, wet weather is so depressing!!
I've got a WOW card to share with you all and i hope it brightens your day as much as it did mine making it!!

The Gorgeous image is called Scilla from Crafty Sentiments Designs and she was part of my prize for winning last weeks challenge. I've coloured her with Promarkers and added some sparkle.
I've layered her onto 2 Marianne Designs Fancy Frames, added a bow and MD butterflies which i embossed with a free folder from  a Mag. The base of the card was embossed with a Cuttlebug dotty folder. 
The sentiment is from my good pal Lynne and is layered onto another piece of card which has been embossed with a Sissix folder. I've added some lace, pearls and sparkle.

The bottom right pic shows the embossing on the inside of the card.
Top Tip - When applying glitter i always apply Glossy Accents as a base for the glitter to stick to, it's great because you can really add depth by using a thicker coat of glossy accents or just a small amount because of the fine applicator nozzle.
