Blowing on the wind

The kids next door love to blow dandelions into my garden, great fun when you're little but I so hate it when they grow in my lawn . There mum never says a word but then again she perhaps thinks it looks good as that appears to be all her lawn is made up of.

This next card is using one of my newest stamps a wee cutie from LOTV and is one of the last good luck cards I have to post , I'm not sure if there are 1 or 2 left to post but nearly at the end of them. I wanted to do something more for me so I chose 2 of my fav colours white and turquoise and set them off with some girlie pink well it is for one of my sons friends and they all seem to be girlie.
The image is again coloured with promarkers and glitzed up with lots of sakura glitter and pearl pen and possibly some clear too on her shoes for good measure too.
The papers are more papermania scraps on top of some fab turquoise vellum that I tore, one of the few things I don't mind distressing as I like how it looks a different colour.

The panel on the side is a forever friends paper scrap and I piereced the pattern with holes that followed the swirls and mounted on pink mirri card for more sparkle. The sentiment is again LOTV and after stamping I added dots of sakura glitter pen foe a bit extra sparkle, well a girl can never have too much fairy magic can she?

Edit 14th for some reason the date on this post is the 7th which is when I wrote it as draft although I did originally post it on the 12th just before my fairy good wishes but with all the problems Blogger has been having I have a couple of posts I am now having to republish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Passion for promarkers-for a teenager
Scrappy frog-anything goes
