Grow little flower, grow

     I just adore Tammy's A Day For Daisies fairies and she has come out this week with a whole new batch of the little flitters.  This one is called "Growing a Flower".  I've colored her with Copics and little bit of Prismas.  The papers are gorgeous Kaisercraft.  The blue flower is a Prima I've had for a while and the little purple lilies are another one of my Florida clearance finds.  I just gathered up some pieces of tulle to tuck under the buttons, added some hemp cording, pearls and a piece of ribbon as a faux hanger.
     Our color challenge is still going for another week over at the ADFD blog.  Hop over there and nab that gorgeous cherry blossom freebie Tammy's offering and play along with it or some other ADFD image.
     Happy weekend!
