A pondering faerie

I meant to have blogged all my cards from last week's crafty weekend by now but I've had a particularly rubbish week at work and just haven't managed to muster up the energy. Luckily, it's now half term so I should be able to get to some making and blogging.

I absolutely adore this card and I'm not sure I'll ever be able to part with it :D The image is a gorgeous fairy crafts and me stamp, she looks like she's pondering something, and it's my first time using promarkers to colour - needless to say these are now on my Christmas list :D

I made the background papers using two different shimmer mists onto white card, a purple one and a pale yellow one, (which the photo does no justice too as they're really sparkly) then finished off with some ribbon, pearls and these gorgeous flowers from my goody bag.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
