Fairy with bouquet

Hello everyone, I would like to welcome a new follower, craftin dawn. Nice to meet you.
I've had a busy day today, starting with a trip to the airport with 2 of our sons and our future DIL. Laurie is now in Phuket for the night and then on to Cambodia in the morning. We left the airport and went to the florist shop where my son knows a girl. She has offered to get the best price for them for their wedding bouquets and table flowers, from there we went to get two new tyres on DIL's work car and while we waited the 45 mins needed to do it, we looked in a electrical shop and then had lunch at a hotel nearby. They dropped me home and I gathered up some craft gear and headed to a friend's place where we made stamped images and put them on candles. They turned out well and they were all pleased with the instructions that I had found on splitcoast stampers. I think some of them will be making more throughout the year now they know how to do it!
Came home early evening to drop my gear off as it is still very hot here and I didn't want my candle melting all over my craft gear. Had a quick tea and headed back into the hospital. Adrian is still there and sounds like Monday will be the day he comes home.
I decided to make a card based on a sketch challenge,so here it is,
I am going to enter this into the following:

4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #74 - PINS!!
Flutterby Wednesday #187 - embossing, must have butterfly, angel or fairy
Freshly Made Sketches #19-A Sketch by Jen Mitchell

The Basecard is SU Wisteria Wonder and the embossed piece of card is SU Rose Red and I used a Nellie Snellen die to make the border on a piece of Wisteria, then a strip of Lucky Limeade, I added a ribbon and 2 little green heart pins. To finish off I added some green bling to the card. The image was a freebie from Lili of the Valley and coloured with Copic Markers
Thanks for popping in today, it was great to "see" you and read your comments.
Hope you are having an enjoyable weekend,
