Taking Care of Flowers

This week's Softpencil card uses the adorable image called Taking Care of Flowers:


I did multiple layers of the little fairy and the flower and added a bunch of Stickles glitter glue for sparkle. Our Design Element was buttons and bows so I made sure to add those in! I also sponged the edges of the main panel with light yellow ink.

I also added a hanging charm and a flattened bead cap to the flowers as I've seen on some other cards that I really love. You can see the whole thing better here:


I used the sketch from the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge:
Other challenges: I hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: patterned paper - Basic Grey (Urban Prairie collection); Barely Banana ink - Stampin' Up!; flowers - Prima; buttons - Papertrey Ink; ribbon - May Arts; petite ovals and petite scalloped ovals Nestabilities; half pearls - MimiLolo Etsy store; chain and bead cap - Firemountain Gems; charm - eBay.
