One more for today

Hey, I'm back again! I got way more done today than expected and managed to complete a second card. Ok, i confess, this one was practically done when i started today, still, it does give a sense of accomplishment :) So this is based on the Creative Card Crew them of "Have a Fairy nice day!" and the sketch below, using brads or eyelets, from Creative Inspirations. When I first saw this sketch i thought it was going to be challenging but i had this dear little fairy all coloured in and I just had to use her and was actually happier with the end product than I thought i would be. This is completely unlike the other sketch i followed today. When i saw that one i had a million and one brilliant ideas but nothing seemed to come together for me, it's funny the way things work out. Anyways, enough waffling (thanks Kellie, great word) here is the sketch:
and here is what i came up with:

To begin with i was not sure what possesed me to combine red and orange, but the more i look at it, the more it grows on me :) i used crystal effects on the wings but it does not show up in the pics, if anything, it makes the colours appear duller, damn! You can also see (sort of) in the first pic where i have used foam tape under the fairy and scalloped circle sentiment to give a 3-dimensional effect. So, thank you again for looking, have a lovely evening everyone!
