one blog challenges loss is anothers gain

This card started off as one challenge and ended up as several others as I did what I'm always telling my son and husband off for and thats not reading the instructions well my scribbled notes which is even worse I suppose. Originally it was for a digi image blog challenge yes the clue is there but I got this idea in my head of what to use the colours with and went jolly along only to realise I'd used the wrong kind of image, rubber stamp not digi. Never mind one challenges loss is anothers gain. I had watercoloured my image using my sakura pens as they give a lovely sheen to them which I thought went well with the fairy and it just happens that over at whimsy stamp challenges the challenge is a watercolour.

Flutterby wednesday challenge wants a thankful card and as my fairy flits from flower to flower she can flit by the flutterby challenge too.

Sophisti-cats has a challenge of wings and my fairy has a nice set of shimmering pink wings so she can flutter by to that challenge too.

The layout is from just christmas and birthdays challenge #49 I wanted something different to just a plain background and remembered this padded effect card which just adds a little bit of dimension.

Sorry about the photo the sakura pens added more glare than I wanted and my kitchen lights don't help, bring back summer, in fact all my cards seem to be reflecting maybe its all the mirricard?
