Sheetload Challenge

Hello everybody,

I have just finished this card for the April Challenge at SheetLoad. I saw about this challenge on the Greeting Farm blog and figured it was the perfect excuse to finally use one of their gorgeous fairies again. Here is my card: And this is a close up of Fairy Cloe:
The first time I saw this little cutie I knew I had to give her red hair. She is so lovely!! Again I used a lot of foam cubes to give her extra dimension. The papers I used are from the Light of my Life Page Kit from Kay Miller. My SS DT friend Tracie got me hooked on these kits, they are so gorgeous!! I have printed everything on pearlescent papers which was an idea I got from my SS DT friend Ria (thanks sweetie!!). I have added two shades of green cardstock and some flowers from stash and a lot of stickles. The sentiment is from Pink Cat Studio from the Enchanted Lily Set.
Have a great day everybody!!
