Guest DT at Prairie Fairy

I'm back again!  Today I've got the honour of being a Guest Designer over at Prairie Fairy for their Fairy Fun Friday Challenge!  It was Robertas Birthday last week and she is having a Birthday theme for the challenge the next 2 weeks.
I won some images on the last challenge and went for 'Pretty Gillian' as our Molly is into dressing up at the moment and this reminded me of her!  Mols has had several dodgy outfits on this week like moon boots and a tutu (we went shopping like that!) and then she put jeans on with a pair of bright pink shorts over the top and she's so stubbornly independent she won't let you help dress her either so once her mind is ade up shes wearing t then she's WEARING it!!!
I designed this card as a bright clash of colours using pink, purple & yellow with some luuuuuuvely bright blue eyeshadow and heavy on the blusher pretty much what Mols would choose :)
She actually came into the room whilst I was making it and said Oooooh thats pretty, its my birthday, I LUB IT (She cant pronounce V's as she has a tongue tie and a lisp so always says Lub!) so I guess this will get stashed away until June when it is her birthday lol!

Image is coloured with promarkers and I've used derwent coloursoft around the edge and also coloured all the pearls with promarkers.  Faux stitching is sakura souffle (lilac)  Papers are from Bearly Mine (Plaids and dots) except the multi coloured birthday one which I've had ages and never quite fit much I made until this one lol!

So thanks you to Fairy Fun Fridays for my guest spot, its been a blast!

And Molly dressing up!  This is when I found her with 13 pairs of her fathers undercrackers over her head!

And her usual sense of style......

Oh this made me laugh out loud! My second daughter is called Gillian, and your card, and your little 'uns photos reminded me so much of her, at that age!
She's now the mother of four (3 boys 1 girl) and STILL doesn't mind goin' out with odd socks, or trainers with a summer dress....but she IS a Bachelor of Science and speaks 4 languages, lol!
Can you tell I LOVE your card?
