Crafty Secrets Challenge on PCP

I have quite a few Crafty Secrets sets and have been wanting to play in some of their challenges, so trying the one Darlene Pavlick is hosting in the Crafty Secrets Group on Papercraft Planet. The theme is springtime and I thought I would use my new Fairyland set. The base card is 6.75 x 3.25. I got a bunch of these with envelopes in some blog candy from Chris Mott; think they may be SU! Anyway, stamped this cute little image with Stazon, colored with (what else?) Prismacolor pencils blended with baby oil. Cut it out and embossed with a long rectangle Nestie. The little notes were from a differen tCS set. Chalked all around it, then added Stickles to the flowers by the fairy and on her dress and wings, and also a "fairy trail" behind her wings. Went all around the base CS with Fiskars lace borders punch, the cut DP from My Mind's Eye to go over it. Sentiment cut out with smallest scalloped rectangle Nestie, embossed, chalked and popped up on foam tape.
Stamps: Crafty Secrets Fairyland and Bird Notes.
Paper: The Paper Studio CS, My Mind's Eye DP.
Ink: Stazon, Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Nestabilities, Stickles, Fiskars border punch, foam tape, Pebbles chalks.

So beautiful, Nancy.
I just love how you color with those pencils, colors are so soft and your shading is fabulous. Lovin the stickles on her wings too.
Beautiful card!

This is very pretty, very sweet. That faerie is adorable. I read how you do these cards and I don't quite grasp it all, but then I'm not into the making part of this, just the ogling and drooling. Missed the last few days, so I'm playing catch up with looking at your stuff.
