Fairy in Blue

This was going to be my GDT post for The Crafty Pad Designs Challenge Blog but when I sent my card in they asked me if I would like to join them as a full time DT member, well I couldn't refuse could I so I will now be joining Team A on a full time basis - how great is that!

The theme for this weeks challenge is - The Perfect Pair - have at least two pairs of things the same on your card, two buttons and two bows for example, we are sponsored by

and the prize is

I think I got a bit carried away with the pairs, I have used a pair of flowers, leaves, butterflies, bows, gems and buttons.

I have chosen to use the lovely Fairy Chloe on Daisies image, I coloured her with ProMarkers and used Spray and Sparkle on her Wings.  The papers are from my Bearly Mine Designs CD layered onto Kraft card stock.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:
