Close your eyes!

Mum asked me to make a birthday card for a 5 year old girl who is blind. She apparently loves fairies. Here is the result. By coincidence this month's Spectrum Noir Challenge is Flowers so I'll pop this onto the challenge page. (The fairy's dress is the flower).

The fairy's wings (a Nestabilities butterfly die) are embossed for texture from the front, and have Distress Stickles behind them. The dress is made from a white flower, edged with colour (Spectrum Noir pen PP3, blended). Skin, clothes, shoes and hair also coloured with Spectrum pens. The white mesh and split pins add further texture, as does the debossed butterfly on the  flap. Another texture has been added to the shoes with Glossy Accents, 'Ally' in Braille has been stitched on in beads. A strip saying Happy Birthday in Braille will be added above Ally's name. The 'Wee Stamps' stamp used came free with a magazine. The top opening is a Nestabilities Deckled Oval Large.
