Sunshine Fairy

Our challenge to you this week at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog is to create a monochromatic card.  It is so dull and dreary here with piles of snow still on the ground that I decided I needed to make something cheerful and I thought this would fit the bill.  You are going to be blown away by the inspiration provided from the rest of the Design Team.

I don't usually like to work from a sketch unless I have to and this week I didn't have to but for some reason decided to follow this sketch from Sketch Saturday.  The senior mind is an weird place, isn't it?

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
