Orange and Green Fairy card (Polkadoodles image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

This is my 2nd last card of the evening and it's a little more my style than the previous ones. Very girly and hopefully you think it has a lot to look at. This beautiful fairy is from Polkadoodles, isn't she divine? I used a lot of die cuts on this card, a technique I often forget to use even though my Spellbinders machine is on my craft table! I did some watercolouring again around the image. My next card is very girly too, I hope you'll stick around to see it.
