Sweet Faeries

Hi stalkers, yes its me, you didnt imagine i had gone far did you?  Been running around with the kids this week, things to do activities to get them to, no rest for the dying and no peace for the dead.  I escaped to my craft room for a few hours this evening, let me tell you winter is her, it felt like i was in a bloody igloo, thought my noombies may freeze right off.  So i got this beauty colored and whipped toghether this simple card to enter into the Creative inspirations challenge. 

There is a little story behind me acquiring this beauty, around January i won a voucher on one of the challenge blogs, but because i am brain dead when it comes to techno matters i couldnt figure out how to get my hands on it, so it took me till about the middle of April to figure it out and i finally recieved my prize this week.
I colored her with my copics and glitzed her skirt and wings, the red paper i stamped and heat embossed with gold embossing powder, shew when last did i do any of these techniques?  Then i cut the two fluer de lis on my cricut, dont remember i think it is home deco, added a single rose to the corner and that is it.  Sweet and simple.  Its gone midnight and i am teaching in the morning so i am off to rest my head.
