Fairy Birthday

This was a very special card for me to make.  It was made for my Mother for her birthday.  She is the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful woman I know, and she is an amazing mother, and Grandmother to my son, we are so so lucky to have her.  She lives in Florida, and I'm in Massachusetts, and sometimes, well to be totally honest it really stinks!  We miss each other a lot though we try to stay in touch via e-mail and on the phone.  We try to visit each other at least a couple times a year, and I was so happy and excited to have her come visit during her birthday week this year!  We had a busy, and fun visit full of good food, shopping (our favorite!), and visits with her other family that are still here in MA as well.  It's always a little bittersweet though because we miss each other all the more when we leave :-( 
As for the card, my Mom had gotten me these pretty lantern stickers as a gift, and I had not been able to use them yet, so I wanted to be able to incorporate one somehow.  I found this lovely fairy Twilight Lily Fae at Crafts and Me.  They have some beautiful products.  I saw she was holding a lantern, so I knew she was perfect.  She is colored with Copics, with yellow stickles added to her wings.  I sponged around the image with yellow and orange ink.  Since I didn't have to mail this one, I knew I could just overload it with flowers, so I went a little crazy, but I love the result.  I'm pretty sure my mom liked it too, and I am so grateful to be able to have been able to present it to her in person.
Sketch is an older one from The Sweet Stop # 138

Papers:  Basic Grey - Plumeria, "Budding Lavendar" and "Graceful Vine".
Embellishments:  W.O.C. and Recollections flowers, Brads from stash, Recollections stick pin, Martha Stewart "Tropical Lantern" stickers, Ribbon from Michaels, Recollections pearls (in her hair).
