A card at last..

Well I've finally got round to posting a card, lol.. I've nearly caught up on my blogging rounds, I've missed so much, wow you all make such beautiful cards. Here's a card I made for my niece Jessie, she has just graduated from Uni with a first class honours degree, I know she believes in fairies so I thought I'd make her a fairy card.

I've had the image for ages, found it somewhere on Google but don't know where. I think she's such a pretty fairy, I decoupaged her, (those circles were a pain to cut out), but I wanted the gold mirri card to show through them, matted and layered it, the backing paper is from a pad I bought at the range years ago, I loved the paper and couldn't part with it until now, lol..
Added a few roses and a charm. Jessie liked it,
Hope you do too
