Emerald Faeries challenge and DT call

A few weeks ago I saw Emerald Faeries Garden were having another DT call so thought I try my luck again.. hey third time lucky!! LOL!!
So I decided I may as well join in their challenge as well which is make an Easel card!!
And look what I created!!!

 I absolutely love how this turned out. I know I keep saying this but since my nan passed away I haven't really felt like crafting but when I have had an idea it has really turned out better than planned and this card is no exception!!
I used the Creatalicious Challenges sketch to get me started and i just went with the flow!!I used a number of Emerald faeries images - including: Isabella, Boo and Snookie, Isla, The Larakins and Willy and Mia. I coloured them all with Tria markers and added kindyglitz to their wings. I decided to have Isabella holding Snookie and Boo and I think it looks perfect!! Was a tedious task cutting out all the little imges but well worth it!! I decided to partly copy the sketch again for the bottom of the easel card. As you can see I added lots of embellishments  and to finish off the card added kindyglitz round the card to look like fairy dust!!..
