Penny Black Fairy

Gosh I was lucky this morning, I forgot to take a pic of this card yesterday and when I did remember it was too dark. This morning isn't much better but I think I got away with it, without too much help from photoshop.
This is a Penny Black Fairy which I have paper pieced right down to her tights and shoes, they were so fiddly don't think I'll do that again.
The papers are freebies out of one the craft mags and I've used my favourite swirl from Magnolia and flower punch. The sentiment is Craftwork cards, layered with the stampin up punches.
Lucky for me there's  a challenge I can enter this in, its Moving Along with The Times whose challenge is for Fantasy and Fairies.
I've been so good yesterday, all my Christmas Cards so far have had their inserts put in and my other cards are sorted out and ready to be put into baggies.
