This week my card is using one for the 3 images from the Pallaria set by Beary Dust Designs. I shoes to use this one as the fairy is flying and that enabled me to use the perfect sentiment to go with it.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers adding lots of stickles glitter. I chose purples for my colour palette so that I could match it up with these pretty papers with flowers and butterflies on.

I used a sketch from The Sketchy Challenge for the layout, matting and layering with some purple and white card throughout. I used a Nellie Snellen die for the doily which protrudes from the corner. The sentiment is a freebie from Vibygor Krafts and has been cut using a Quickutz Cookie Cutter die. I used a Fiskars border punch and my Martha Stewart butterfly punch with lots of self adhesive gems for decoration. Finally I added some gems to the image and my purple fairy is complete.
