Harvest Fairy Apple

Good afternoon everyone. I am a little late with this post but I do have a good excuse. Work has been a complete nightmare. I have been the only member of staff in on my section for the past 4 days and life has been a little hectic. My son is off camping today with the scouts so I had to go into work early and then rush home and pack his stuff. Thank heavens its Friday........

Having got all that off my chest its time for a fabulous challenge over at SFTW. It's a fortnightly challenge so plenty of time to get your creative thinking caps on. There is also some fabulous inspiration for you over at the blog. The theme this time is Fairies and Fantasy. The lucky winner of this challenge will receive a fab surprise package.

As soon as I found out the challenge theme I new I was going to use this gorgeous digi
 from Mo Manning. She is called Harvest Fairy Apple (hence the post name).
I have coloured her using Copic's and a white pen for the spots on the apple.
The card shape I cute using a Go Create die which I got at Ally Pally in a lucky dip bag.
The papers are My Minds Eye traditional Christmas. The sparkle round the edge is a translucent rainbow embossing powder. The flowers have been cut using a very old quick Kutz die.
The heart tag is a Doohicky die by Magnolia which was another buy from Ally Pally and would you believe only £10!!!!!!!
