A card for a child

Good morning, peeps! Yep, that's the title of the current challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge at the moment. I couldn't get my card ready in time for the first DT group so one of my kind teamies stepped in for me and I'm part of the second week's team for this challenge. Anyhoo, it got me thinking about what appealed to me as a small child and it was definitely a fantasy word of fairies and fairytales - so what's changed I hear you say!! Here she is surrounded by her fairytale land(provided via a bit of masking):

I think this could be a Fairy Godmother Tilda .... in my imagination anyway. She's coloured with Copics and Prismas and the rest of the 'recipe' is below. I hope you have a wonderful day whatever you decide to do with it. I have a sample card for next week's class to finish then, later on, I'm assisting in the moving of (some of) my hubby's office from the dining room table to a proper office. Whoop, whoop - I may even see it's (sometimes) polished surface again and not have to move piles of paper every evening to eat supper! I live in hope!
