Prairie Fairy GDT - Tippy Toe Fairy Pearls & Swirls

Prairie Fairy theme - Pearls & Swirls

Hi, and the first of a double posting for me today as I have been asked to join Roberta & the gang at Prairie Fairy again in the GDT slot. My card this time around uses 'Tippy Toe Fairy' doing something of a balancing act along a blue 'beam' as if she were an Olympic gymnast. She has of course been coloured with my Promarkers.

The whole colour scheme for this card is picked from the single background paper, a fabulous floral swirl from Bearly Mine and I used a couple of dies to create the extra red swirls and my pearls are pale blue and hopefully come across as tiny blue buds on the red vines.

I hope Roberta likes what I have done with her image and I would like to thank her and DT for asking me to play along with them again this week.

Challenges I am entering this particular card for are:
Die Cut Dreams - red, white & blue
