Spring fairy

This is for Arianne's sketch on Sunday sketch & stamp 23:

I used a Greeting Farm digi: 'spring fairy', so I'm linking for:

Anyone for Anya: 'spring fever'
Quixotic 17: 'altered Anya & friends' - I printed the image on to white card, then the spring green Craft creations paper for the fairy's clothes and then on to a patterned silver card, which I sprinkled with black detail and heat embossed before cutting out and sticking on the main image - I don't usually go for paper piecing, but enjoyed doing this

It's also for:

Your next stamp 12: 'distressing' - the torn and chalked oval
Stamp something: 'distres
Stamp, scrap & doodle 32: 'tearing'
In style March challenge: 'yellow and green'
Crafty pad 62: 'ovals & ribbons' - at least one oval, 2 ribbons
Curtain call 21: always artichoke, certainly celery, barely banana, whisper white'
Squigglfly 40: 'let it shine'
One stop craft: 'let it shine'
Created by hand: 'are you wearing green' - this fairy is
Digital Tuesday 50: 'lots of green'
Jacksonbelle: 'show us your new stuff' - I bought the Greetiing farm 'spring fairy' today
Creative Inspirations 52: 'white, yellow & green'
Digi shack: 'green'
Flutter by Wednesday 101: 'green' - I've included a fairy and a butterfly
KL stampin' n scrappin' 22: flowers and stitching - the bottom ribbon is stitched
C.R.A.F.T. 42: 'nursery rhymes' :
'Where are you going, sister Kate?
I’m going to swing on the garden gate
And watch the fairy gypsies dance
Their tim-tam-tum on the cabbage-plants'
Pixie dust studio 13: 'the power of 3' - 3 flowers, 3 gems
Frosted designs: 'think spring' - use a flower
Fussy & fancy 6: 'green'
Simple doodles 13: 'show a little green' - I've used a required digi
Allsorts 44: 'spring is in the air'
Bee crafty 26: 'spring' - I've included a digi
Crazy 4 challenges 29: 'spring'
Lots to do 11: 'springtime'
Secret crafter Saturday 75: 'spring has sprung'
Sweet stampin' 18: 'spring is in the air'
Daisy dooddles 4: 'artist choice' - must include a digi
Loonie 84: 'use a die cut shape in your design' - the spellbinder butterfly
365 cards day 13: 'a whole new dimension' - paper piecing on the fairy
Cutie stampers 47: 'spring'
Totally Gorjuss 22: 'ribbon'

I've just noticed that the gems look blue here, but irl they are silver.
