cupcake craft challenge

apologies for being such a bad blogger, i have been neglecting my blog a bit recently as i was getting things organised for a weekend camping in Anglesey last weekend , we had a fabulous time, am all stress free and chilled out now, but a little sore, as for the first time ever i have burn't my shoulders, i hope it feels better soon or i dont know how i'll stand to wear my tunic for work tomorrow lol, i just hope this weather lasts till next weekend as i'm off work then too ...

this is my entry for this weeks cupcake craft challenge, the challenge is set by evelina and she's chosen fairies, i know this is strictly not a fairy image but she has wings, so i understand if its not ok

the image is a magnolia coloured with my promarkers and cut with circle and peony nesties, the paper is forever friends, the ribbon from my stash, the raffia lace from hobbycraft, the brads from stash and spacers from ebay. the flowers are prima and the sentiment is cuddly buddly and the rose from wildorchidcrafts.

the promarker colours i've used are:
HAIR: Ice grey 1-5
SKIN: Dusky pink, Blush,Ivory
DRESS: Blue Pearl, Cornflower Blue
WINGS: Satin, Blue Pearl
SOCKS: Satin

Thanks for popping in
