Fairy on Tiptoe

Hi everyone, this little sweetie has recently taken up residence at my house and I was desperate to use her, so I thought I'd enter this weeks LOTV challenge which is a sketch by Dawny P. This is a first for me as I've never entered one of their challenges before.
Another first with this card was remembering to use my Flowersoft on the little flowers. I've had a couple of pots of this for well over a year now and never got around to using it before. I was a bit apprehensive, but everything worked well and I love the textured look. Oh and I also used my new Stardust Stickles quite liberally too LOL.
I can't remember the last time I entered a challenge, so with that thought in mind I've managed to fit my card to quite a few and they are:

Lilli of the Valley - Challenge 55
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Dazzle Us
Passion for Promarkers - Pink Birthday
My Time to Craft - Xtra Special
A Spoon full of Sugar - Floral Delight
Stamp Something - Happy Somethings

Card Details:
* Image -  Lilli of the Valley 'Fairy on Tiptoe'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania 'Blueberry Hill'
* Sentiment -  Papermania 'Rose Garden'
* Everything else from my stash

I'm hoping that this will see the start of  my return to crafting and blogging (in fact, I'm working on another card at the moment) and I'll also be resuming my DT role with Sketch & Stash from the next challenge too.
I've been visiting and commenting on some of my fave blogs over the last week or so and I'm looking forward to catching up with you all in the coming days.
Until then, thanks for visiting and take care,

It's made my day to see this lovely card Chrissie and know that you are getting back into cardmaking! I am looking forward to seeing your next creation. This is so pretty and, as always, everything matches so perfectly, love the delicate pinks and blues. The image looks good against the deep pink fabric you have used.
