Say It With Flowers....

...Which is the theme for the current Mo Manning challenge and I decided to use 'Teen fairy Mia' for this. It's only the second time I've used this digi - she really deserves to come out a bit more often - and I coloured her with Promarkers. I used a Sakura glitter pen on her wings and lace underskirt and unfortunately this doesn't show up in the photo but it looks lovely when the light catches it. The papers are both freebies with magazines, the flowery one is Jennifer Ellory and I'm not sure about the striped one. I cut the image out with a QuicKutz nesting frame die and attached it with sticky pads so that it stood off the card slightly. There is a Memory Box Fairytale Flower Border at the top of the card with some MB Fancy Blossoms and some pearls added to give it a bit of dimension. The ribbon is from my stash and I added a peel-off sentiment.

We've just had a new camera and it's taking a bit of getting used to so please excuse the photo quality.
