Fairy Happy Birthday Wishes

Here's a card I made for my niece's birthday...she turned 13 this year, no longer a little girl, but not yet a woman, so I had to choose my image carefully. I chose a really pretty one, its called 'The Fairies Frolic' by The Stamping Boutique.

 Inside the card

My punched flowers.

Flourish with gems.

 Image coloured with Promarkers.

I added some liquid pearls here and there to finish.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for looking.

=) I had the same problem with my niece who turned 16 in December. You picked well: not too little girl, not too grown-up. =) =) Thanks for joining us for the Things with Wings challenge at SAS4K! ~Christy
