Emerald Garden Fairy

Good morning! Today I'd like to share with you a card that I created while following Suzanne Dean's tutorial. She is a fabulous artist and teacher. I was fortunate enough to have taken two of her classes last year and look forward to doing so again in the future. Here is where you can find her tutorial on coloring folds for this adorable image called "Silver Fairy" by Wee Stamps. I think she is the cutest little fairy and a must have for all you fairy lovers. When I took Suzannes class she had a list of Copic markers to bring along to work with and the green's used in coloring this stamp were on the list. Shhhh... don't tell Suzanne but I have never used them, I know sinful. Anyway when I came across her tutorial and gathered the markers she used I said to myself, no way these are just not my colors.

Anyway I tried them and yup they are now my new favs!
These are the Copics used YG97, YG95, YG93 AND YG91.
 The designer paper I used are by Die Cuts with a View. Flowers by Wild Orchids and Recollections. The Adore ticket sentiment is by Tim Holtz. Pearl flourish is by Prima and I tucked a cute little pearl stick pin behind the hand dyed seam binding and topped it with a handmade fairy pebble.

I am submitting my card into the following challenges
Sketch N Stash 72 sketch
Sweet Stamps 37 lots of layers
Charisma Cardz 41 in stitches
Make it Monday anything goes
