A Fairy Happy Birthday

Hi All!  I've got a first to celebrate tonight...it's the first challenge over at Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenge which I'm super excited to enter!  I love sketch challenges because they always push the boundaries of my creativity and force me to stretch my 'style'...and this challenge is even more inspiring because of the awesome DT members that are heading it up.  All that inspiration in one place is pretty mind blowing!  I hope my card measures up :)  I've paired papers from a new paper pad called Uncommon made by Authentique with the Fairy Kira stamp from Tickled Pink Stamps.  Matched up with those are some of my favorite things- some flowers, a generous sprinkling of bling and a Tim Holtz metal embellishement...when all these things end up on the same card you really can't mess it up too bad- at least that's what I tell myself  :)  Hope you enjoy!

Copics:
Face/Skin: E000, E00, E11, R37, BV23, BV25, BV29, YG61, YG67
