For my card I’ve used one of the newer images from Digi Doodle Shop.She’s called Fairy in Flight and as soon as I saw her I knew I wanted  to create something with her – she’s so beautiful.Initially I was going to use her as a Christmas fairy.But I’m SO not ready for Christmas I decided instead to make a girly card for my niece’s birthday.I cut up to parts of her using a metal ruler and craft knife,then cut  around the rest that I wanted to hang over the edge with decoupage scissors.Like a kind of manual version of the ‘Out-of-the-box’ technique using Nesties.I coloured her with Promarkers and added Glamour Dust to her wings.I hope you agree that she looks ‘fairy beautiful’!
