Fairy with Flowers and Pearls

This card was especially inspired by the sketch at Simon Says, the petals and pearls challenge at Crafty Catz, and the lace challenge at Die Cut Dreams. This wonderful image is from Stamping Boutique, and I colored her with markers and then added lots of gitter pen to her wings and around her (doesn't show too well in the photo). For good measure I added the pearl into the center of her magical flower. I used a Martha Stewart lace punch and a lace ribbon with pearls for my two strips on the sketch. I created the center flower by taking two white flowers and inking them two different colors and then added the little yellow flower and the pearl. I added the Prima roses  from my unused stash, and then topped it off with this lovely charm which is new but has been in my stash for a long time.
