"Dainty Fairy" Card for Paper Take Weekly Challenge Sample

Hello Everyone!
Hope you are all ready for Christmas!  ;)

Today is the 3rd Tuesday of the month which means it is Paper Take Weekly challenge time again! This is my first official sample as a full time DT. I was a guest designer for them last month and the sweet DawnyP asked me to stay on. Well....SURE!  :)
The challenge this time is "Anything Goes" so I broke out with some goodies from several of my design teams.
Note ~ If you like, and are going to go buy this stamp, make sure and use coupon code SAVE10TRUE to save 10% off of your entire purchase! :)
The beautiful Pink Gradient Gems are from Creative Charms.
The stunning flowers, leaves, and ribbon slidder are all from Wild Orchid Crafts...well...I am not on their design team...but I am in me head! LOL! I LOVE their product and Paul and Siri are sooo sweet!

I used Copics to color the image this time. I don't use them that often but really like it when I do. My problem is, that I don't have a large collection of them so don't have all of the colors I would like to use. I had the right colors for this image though. I wanted to match the color of her flower skirt to the color of one of the large Champagne Pink Curly Wild Roses that WOC sent me as a freebie with my last order. See...I told you they are sweet!  :)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
 Wild Orchid ~ "Pink, White and Silver"
Paper Sundaes ~ "Cut It Out"
(I cut around her wing and wand)
Die Cut Dreams ~ "Girlie"
Ally's Sunday ~ "Anything Goes"
Thanks for taking time out of your busy Christmas week to come check out my blog!
Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas!

True :D
