Red And Teal Fairy

I guess that I can say this card is a result of several coincidences: first, I received Lily Of The Valley printed images along with my monthly PaperCrafts Inspirations magazine and there was this beautiful fairy among those images, second, I went shopping in my favorite shop while I was on small holiday in  - well you could say a countryside, and saw for the first time in Latvia that rose like lace in white, yellow and red colors + that wonderful teal lace, third, I remembered that Magical Monday challenges where having exactly red and teal challenge this week....
This fairy is so cute, but unfortunately I was somewhat disappointed for the quality of the paper it was printed on - it was very difficult to color the image as the ink was bleeding a lot... :( I used these ProMarkers (but for this particular image I would sure loved to have those new fine tip nibs and FlexMarker pastel shades)
Cardinal Red, Berry Red, Antique Pink, Baby Pink, Blush, Marine, Turquoise, Mint Green, Duck Egg, Pastel Blue, Blender, Canary, Sandstone, Mustard, Buttercup, Ivory, Cool Aqua.
Oh I just love that rose lace... And I'm glad that I also got those gem flourishes which it is impossible to buy here in Latvia. These ones were from Storyteller. As in my previous card, the sentiment says "From All My Heart". As usual I used K&Company papers and lots of distressing and inking! But this time the edge of blue panel actually is made with same ProMarkers I used for coloring fairy.
For this card, I also used sketch from ICSketches:
And there are also two anything goes challenges I will enter this card into:
