613 Avenue create DT inspiration for May 10th

Hi Everyone. Hope you are all well :)
I have here a Inspiration card for the challenge over at 613 Avenue Create for challenge #123 Let's celebrate.
I have used a Poppy Seed Graphics digital stamp called Fairy of March you can grab her here.
I would give this card for a birthday or any occasion really.
I made a larger card measuring approximately 6" x 8" high. I coloured the stamp with polychromos and did the background with inktense pencils. The wings outline was fairly thick so i dulled the lines with a white gel pen.
Seeing she is a fairy i decided to give her more of a glow in her skin and used yellows instead of the usual pinks. I decided to add a bunch of die cut leaves. some of which are the new kaisercraft vines dies and a couture creations one which i cut in half (the scrolly looking one). The little leaves are a martha stewart punch and the grass type bits i made myself. I didnt want to cover it in flowers as there are daffodils in the stamp so i decided to make a few stick pins with beads and pearls matching the earthy yellow colours. i also added some gold/brown pearl garland near the bottom to keep it balanced.
This card is being entered in the following challenges
