Prairie Fairy Friday #69 Sparkly Wings

Hello my dears,  It's Friday and another wonderful challenge is happening over at Fairy Fun Friday the last one for 2011.  I can't believe 2012 is only a few days away, and for the first time in 35 years I won't be singing live at someones celebration party or event. Due to my health issues I've had to take early retirement from my beloved Singing career.  But I have some wonderful memories of events, places, countries etc to keep me going.

Anyway back to our fab challenge, our hostess is  and she has chosen the theme of Sparkly Wings.  A nice easy challenge to end the year on.

I've used the adorable So Sweet Fairy from Roberta's wonderful Fairy collection.  You can find them all HERE  I coloured her with pro markers and derwent water colour pencils and I've used Glamour Dust on her wings.

A full recipe for my card is below this post.

I would like to wish everyone a Very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year when it arrives.
