A Basic Grey Friday ... Sketchers ...

I was inspired by Jacque's fab sketch at Friday Sketchers to produce this card for my Auntie Pat who will be 92 this week and would probably be horrified that I'm telling everyone her age!  I'm combining my entry with Basic Grey who want to see spots and dots and have a DT call.  I used "Danni" by Elisabeth Bell for SCAD, coloured in Copics and Promarkers with two different coloured Stickles on her wings.   I only used papers from my newly organised scraps collection and I know the floral paper is part of a 12x12 sheet of Basic Grey because it still had a bit of the border on the scrap I used and I think the dotty horizontal band is also Basic Grey because it matched so well but I can't be 100% sure.  I have no idea what the background DP is I'm afraid.   I used one of my new fancy Birthday metal clips by Making Memories on the dotty ribbon.
Most of the flowers are Prima "Got Flowers" and there are two little roses from an unknown source and some leaves cut with an MS branch punch.   I'm pretty sure the sentiment was a freebie with my Craft Stamper magazine and it's so perfect for fairy images that it's likely to be seen quite often as I have a new  Birthday Fairy coming, courtesy of Jacqui at the Cats Whiskers having been lucky enough to win two stamps in a recent LOTV blog hop.  I am soooooooo grateful!
