"Fairy Tabia"

Well good morning Ladies, guess what weve got the white stuff back again, not to deep but still a hazard when you go out in it. Ive got some news for you today, my second eldest grandson Thomas whos 17 and suffers with Aspergers Syndrome passed his driving test at the first attempt on Thursday and Im that proud of him that I thought you might like to know that even children with problems can achieve what they really set their hearts to, and Thomas from the time he was born had a lot of those so you can understand why Im so proud of him and his mum who has always believed in him.
Ive had a strange week firstly my desktop computer played up and locked up a couple of times, and was only sorted by my hubby changing a cable inside it, as it kept loosing contact with it, then my printer decided to lock up, I exchanged my printer with my hubbys and after some jiggling around he eventually got it working again, then to crown it all my Wii locked up this morning, luckily it just meant I had to turn it of and on again, but Im begining to think Ive got a jinx on things, luckily Ive just finished taking up five pairs of trousers and fortunately it all went smoothly, just hope it goes on that way as tomorrow weve got to go and purchase some clothes for my MIL whos in a Old Peoples home locally Im not sure Im looking forward to that.
Anyway to get back to business todays card has been created for not only the Dream Team but also for this weeks Mo Challenge which is "Fantasies and Fairies", Ive used this sweet image of "Fairy Tabia" for my card and you will find her here in Mos Digital Pencil Shop. Ive printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, after which Ive cut her out with my rotatrim as she was a bit big for my dies, then mounted her onto a piece of lilac pearlescent card. The sentiment is one I created on my computer and this has been mounted in the same way.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of lilac card with one of three papers from Kay Millers "Cutie pa Tootie" digi paper set, this first one is a beige background with mauve and pink flowers on, in the two opposite corners Ive used a corner punch, on the next two squares Ive used the all around punches of the same design, the paper designs are in pink and mauve, then off set them to create a star, on top of this Ive wrapped a satin ribbon around the middle and positioned my mounted image in the middle and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
To finish of Ive created a flower spray of some white and mauve roses and with some punched out fern leaves stuck them to the top left hand corner. The last thing Ive done is popped some dark mauve pearls around the punched out corners.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
