Mother's Day Fairy

I made this Mother's Day card using Tea Cup Fairy from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday challenge.  The base of my card is white cardstock backed in sherbert orange cardstock.  I added a strip of sherbert orange. I added a piece of white sheer ribbon across the bottom of the strip and then backed it in white and then backed again in sherbert orange.  I punced the edge of the last layer using an eyelet lace border punch. I added the completed strip to the right side of the card and added a bow made out of the same white sheer ribbon.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I colored the fairy's hair black for the coloring black hair challenge at Make It Colourful.  I cut the image out using a circle template and backed it in sherbert orange.  I created the sentiment on my computer. I backed it in sherbert orange and added it to the bottom of my card.  I created the flowers using the Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut cartridge.  I cut one type of flower out of white and the other out of sherbert orange.  I created the finished flower by adding one of the sherbert orange flowers ontop of the white flower and attatching it with a white brad.  To finish my card I added 3 light orange pearls to the left bottom corner just under the sentiment.
