Fairy Baby

I have made another card using one of the baby fairies from the 3 Baby Fairies bundle, which you can buy at Mo's Digital Pencil.
I used Prima's Botanica paper pad and Wild Orchid Craft Flowers. I dyed some seam binding with Wild Honey Distress Ink, threaded into some crochet lace and added a vintage button. 

If I get the chance while on vacation, I will try to update this post with the copic colors I have used. If I don't and you would like me to give you the colors, feel free to let me know and I will add it for sure when I get back!
