ABC Challenge - L is for Lace

Hi girls. What a pleasure to have here on my blog. I am glad you were able to spare the time to visit. I hope you find it time well spent. Well no further snow here just very low temperatures after the thaw on Monday so the drive and patio were like an ice rink. Oh for warmer weather. I hope wherever you are things are a bit warmer.
I am beginning to get into my stride a bit and am managing a card each day just now so I hope it continues for a while. For today's card I have followed the sketch for the ABC Challenge where this weeks theme is "L is for Lace". I have inked up Lili of the Valley's "Apple Blossom Fairy" and coloured her using my Copics. The design papers are actually scraps from my paper stash drawer mounted on Bazzil Bling. The flowers are by Wild Orchid and the leaves and glitter (there is glitter although it doesn't show too well) are from my stash. I used lace ribbon from my stash but threaded a narrow pink ribbon through one edge.
I hope you like this offering today and that you might have a minute to leave me a comment to tell me what you think of it. I value your input.
Have a safe happy and healthy day and enjoy your crafting and blogging.
