Good Luck in Your New Job

My goodness me this virus that I've had now since the week before Christmas is a persistent so-and-so and doesn't want to go.  This card has taken me 1.5 weeks to make.  A friend of mine is starting a new job today.  I wanted her to get this card well ahead of time but this virus has wiped me out.  At least she'll get the card before her first pay packet!!  I wish her all the very best in her new job and thank goodness it will mean no more motorway drives every day for her.

The image I have used is from Faery Ink Designs and is called "Gabbie the Rose Tea Fairy".  I love that this image comes in both JPEG and PNG format and you get a black lines version and a no lines version.  What a bargain for $3.00.

I have coloured my image in with my Promarkers and used a yellow, pink, blender and coarse medium Pan Pastel for the background.  I have added some Stickles glitter glue to the fairy's wings, edge of dress and the hearts on the tea-cup.

The blue backing papers are from The Works and are a 8x8 set for £3.00.  It is wonderful value.  I bought a pink one recently and prefer the combinations in that pack whereby you get two of each paper whereas this blue pack you only get one of each paper.  The patterned pink card is from Hunkydory.  I have inked around the edge of all the papers and the image with either Tim Holtz's Victorian Velvet or Chipped Sapphire distress ink.

I have finished the card off with some crochet ribbon, pearls, wired edged ribbon that I have pleated, sentiment off the computer, button, 10mm pink gingham ribbon, white spiral stamen (inked with a pink chalk ink pad), white Cosmos daisies (which I have inked with a pink chalk ink pad) and two shades of pink Sweetheart Blossoms.
