A gem of a challenge - Fairies

Good morning all! How cold is it right now?! I think I may have to invest in thermals at this rate lol!
Well I thought I was doing ok with the stash buying thing, sort of! I was waiting for my pion papers to come so I don't need those Tilda papers now do I?! I did try to buy them but the order wouldn't process with my paypal account! It was clearly a sign not to buy anymore!!!! But then after a facebook conversation for half the night last night (you know who you are ladies!!) I ended up buying them anyway and using my card lol!!! Hubby has told me I'm a fire hazard with all this card and paper! Oh well at least I have some yummy Tilda papers on the way now too ;)
Its challenge time again at A Gem of a challenge and we have the theme of fairies! Janet has got some super new fairy digis in the store so you should check the little darlings out! Here is mine...
She is so cute! Actually so cute that most of the DT have used her lol! I have also used prima pixie glen papers here (not new papers lol!) along with some wide lace I have had for ages. My seam binding cluster with pins and pebble was inspired by the fabulous Chelsea (she does it so much better than me!) My green seam binding, pebble and white pin was from my wonderful friend Bonnie and the other pin form the fabulous Tracey. My thinner lace and flowers are WOC with a prima flower also. My sentiment is Waltzingmouse and my pearls from stash.
You can buy this darling image HERE. I have coloured her with prisma pencils and added stickles and glamour dust to her wings.
I'm not liking the photos at the mo. I do colour, brighten and white balance them (they would look awful otherwise!) but I still feel they look washed out to the real thing, maybe some better weather will help my photography later!
I would like to enter this into Paper pretties use ribbon, Craft us crazy anything goes, Papercrafting journey fairies, DYSU anything goes, Frosted designs ribbon and poodles parlour anything goes.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again today lovelies! Hugs to all
