Copic Colour Challenge meets The Fairy Fun Friday Challenge, Lili Of The Valley and exciting news!!!

Firstly, my exciting news!!!.......... I've been chosen as a DT member for the Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge blog! I'm SO pleased and can't WAIT to get started along with the other uber talented DT members.
Bring it on!!!

Now for this card......I made this with the  Fairy Fun Friday Challenge in mind and coincidentally, coloured him in the almost exact same colours needed for the  Copic Colour Challenge #60. I love it when I have a happy accident. Don't you? Isn't this stamp gorgeous!! It's by Lili of the Valley and called 'Lazy Afternoon'.
I don't have Y23. I coloured his hair with Y28. I did use the other two colours though. (You don't have to have an exact match. Just the nearest thing). It's also eligble for the Lili of the Valley blog challenge.
The 'sky' is sponged with SU's Bashful Blue and the DP is from DCWV.. 'Nana's Nursery'.
The ribbon is also SU. The sentiment I stamped in the image frame is from a set called 'Ticketed' by Stampology. I just used one of the sentiments without the actual ticket stamp.
I produced the bottom myself off the PC and attached it with eyelets and twine.
I'm a bit chuffed with this one and it is going to my grandson for his birthday next month.

Thanks for calling by
