I Believe In Fairies!

Well,did you enjoy the Ladybug's blog hop last week? there are going to be lots of happy faces some time soon,there were so many lovely prizes on offer and they are just waiting now to be claimed!.
 So,today being Tuesday means it's time for a new Ladybug Challenge and this week it's being hosted by Queen Ladybug herself,Kerry. The challenge theme is Fairies!  As I didn't have a Ruby fairy,I had the difficult decision of choosing which one to purchase,my oh my,they are all so gorgeous,I think I made the right decision though Shopping Ruby is a stunner isn't she, and sooooo gorgeous to colour!

A bit of a different colour scheme for me today as I made this card for my gorgeous niece who's birthday it was last week,her favourite colour is turquoise,least it was,hope that's still the case!

The papers are from my hoards,can't believe how much I enjoyed using these colours together,really made a change. The ribbon needed a little something and luckily the sequins matched my scheme perfectly. I'm trying hard to be good and use up things from my stash at the moment rather than buying new just for the sake of it. Boy it's hard! I'm hoping Santa will reward me for being good ;) 

Love the blingy wings,isn't Stickles just the best! Check out that Ruby's new heels too,couldn't you just trip the light fantastic in a pair of those!

A rather huge bow,a bit of decoration to the inside and the card is complete! Happy Days!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
HOCC12,Die Cuts or punches,
MIM63,Anything goes,
SFC124,Happy Birthday,
Stamps R Us,Bling it on,
Crafting When We Can,Female Birthday,
