Life Is Better With Cookies - FFFC #160 'Pastel Colours'

Hello.  Happy Friday!

We're starting a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  The lovely Pat K is our hostess for this challenge and the theme she has chosen is 'Pastel Colours.'  Sponsoring this challenge is The Paper Shelter.  To get complete details on the challenge, please visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  Don't forget to check out the fabulous creations that my teammates have created to inspire you to join us.

Here's the card that I came up with using one of The Paper Shelter digital images.




A closer look at the adorable Paper Shelter image being featured.


I've done the colouring with my alcohol-ink markers (colour listed below) along with a few coloured pencils.  I've added some glitter to the fairy wings.  

This image is called The Fairy of the Cookies and you can find it at The Paper Shelter store HERE.
