Fairy Vicky - My Crafty Heart DT Card

Evening all !! (no I am not doing the Dixon of Dock Green salute!! LOL how old am I?) Hope everyone is keeping warm and snug!! Brrr... it feels really cold today. I have a stomach bug and feel yukky, so struggling with everything. Just want to crawl back into bed!! 
Anyway, I enjoyed my weekend and eventually found some mojo. This card was so much fun to make. The gorgeous digi image is by the talented Teresa from My Crafty Heart and is called 'Fairy Vicky' named after my MCH teamie, the lovely Vicky. I do love this image and she is wonderful to colour!! 

I really wanted this card to be like a beautiful medieval garden. I was even going to add Topiary!! but it was just too much on this card. So will save that for a larger layout!! I have distressed all the edges of the paper and then added 'Platinum' Stickles. She's coloured with Copics and Flexmarkers. 

            'Fairy Vicky likes to sing and dance and entertain the other fairies across the land'

I hope you like it... Photos are taken with my new 'light tent' - are they any better? LOL
