Crafty Little Fairies DT Card

Hello everyone how are you all? Well I'm running extremely late with my DT card this week :0( Had a few poorly days so didnt get into my craft room. The papers were sorted, sort of lol & my image was all coloured...........but thats as far as it got!!
However better late than never & I'm not here with the new challenge for Craft Little Fairies & this week its the blue fairies & we want to see.................
SPORT dont go running away screaming, its good trust me ;0) I was originally gonna do a male card, however I saw this in my image bow waiting to be coloured up & thought she would be perfect. Yes it doesn't have to be a male card just because its sport.
Look I've even kept it simple-ish..............hey its simple for me lol. I followed a sketch which I hadnt seen as I had not been in blogland. However my lovely teamie Elizabeth made a super gorgeous card & when I saw she followed a sketch............well I quickly drew it then went to my craft room.

The lace & dark brown card used for matting are from my stash.

The flower I made with MB 'Fabulous Phlox' die & added a brown pearl to the centre.

The fabbylicious image is of course a Saturated Canary digi 'Jamie Workout' & I coloured her with Copics.
Colours used are........
E11, E21, E00, E000, R32 - Skin
E59, E55, E53, E51 - Hair
W7, W5, W3, W1 - Dumbell
N3, N1, NO - Background
I paper pieced her clothes with the same papers I've used for the card, I did her bands on the bra top & trousers with the striped paper.

The uber gorgeous papers are MME Lost & Found 'Madison Avenue' which I have also machine stitched. The sentiment reads 'Girls can do anything we put our minds to because we put our hearts in it' & its from Little Darlings 'Girls Rock'. You dont want to know how long I've had this stamp set for but I only finally cut into it today :0( 

Well thats it from me but please go over & see my teamies uber fabulous creations, they have done wonders..........they like their sports ;0)

Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by it means a lot.
Squishy hugs to all mmwah
