Pixie Dust Cloud

Today's card is a lesson in reminding me to choose my papers before I start colouring my image. Instead I sailed straight into the colouring and only when I'd finished did I wonder what papers I might be able to use!

After going through all my paper pads, I eventually settled on one which seemed to match the colours and, although it is quite a 'busy' paper, it didn't seem to be too attention grabbing which might detract from the image.

The fairy dust clouds are actually much more glittery than they look in the photo as I smothered them in Wink of Stella and they really do sparkle.

I trimmed the base of the rather large image panel with my new stitched hillside border die and added two shades of sheer organza ribbon, tied in a bow and topped off with a small button, and a trio of pearls.

I hope you like it:

Squirrel pinched my word!! I was also going to say magical.. and I know how difficult it is to get the camera to pick up on sparkle! Your card is fabulous - I love the fabbie design and I would have thought you'd chosen the paper first if you hadn't have said!

What a fabulous image Annette and beautifully coloured too. I wonder why the dust cloud in my house isn't golden and twinkly when I'm zooming around with the dyson a la Freddie Mercury!! xx
