fairy magic

I decided after seeing so many clean and simple cards around and after being really pleased with my back to school card that I made in a similar style ( here) I'd have a go with a girly card .

The sentiment is one I had made ages ago when I found somewhere that made acrylic stamps to your design but as all the info for the place is on my other profile that is still lost then I unfortunately don't know the details to share or reuse but I'm sure it will be on the internet somewhere.

The image is lily of the valley, I just think she is so cute and explains why my garden has so many dandelions in the lawns.

I used promarkers that I scribbled with on an acrylic block and then used a water pen to pick up colour and paint the image. It meant I could use quite strong colours and achieve a soft pastel colours effect and that the colours don't show through the card on the inside. Being a fairy there had to be sparkle and for that I used a sakura glitter pen on all the dandelion clocks , her hair band and of course her wings. 

When both are stamped on a white base card the card is finished. I did keep looking at it wondering if I should add something more but resisted , the only thing I might changed if I was to remake the card would be to use a different colour for the sentiment though I'm not sure what but think it might look better in softer hues.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
