Have a magical birthday!

Hiya! Hope you're all having a lovely day like I am! A blog award this morning, some friends popped round for a cuppa and a natter and then a lovely afternoon catching up on all your lovely blogs :-) And then I find I have a few new followers too! Thankyou so much - I'll be popping over to visit you shortly!

I had a bit of fun with this card... I have used a Sugar Nellie image, Maggie the Christmas Fairy (available here) but I think she can be used for birthdays aswell as Christmas!

I've used my promarkers, some glitter gel pen and some glitter glue on her wings and the trim of her dress.

The papers and gems are Henbury Lane, the lacey heart border punch is from Xcut and the embossing folder is Victorian Fleur from Papermania. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is a Daisy and Dandelion clear stamp.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
The ABC challenge - M is for Magical (with an optional sketch which means I can enter it twice!)
Sarah Hurley - Birthday girl
Wags 'n' Whiskers - A Fairy Special Challenge (my 2nd entry)

Hope you like it :-)

Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
