A challenge entry and an update

Wow it's so long since I did this last I feel like I'm starting again, thanks to all those who have left comments etc during my sister's crisis. Thankfully I can now report she has had the operation, the lump was benign and she is out of hospital. She has a long way to go yet as her sight is very poor but at least she is here and we are hopeful of a good recovery for her. I have been able to do some crafting this week in between looking after the grandchildren and this is the result.

The image is Holly Fairy but I'm not sure who she is by, the background is from Doodle Pantry, I coloured everything with my promarkers, added some flower soft and glitter to the trees, for the first time I used some lace on the bottom of her skirt an effect I quite like, I used my dies to cut the swirls and the layers.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

I was planning to enter it in a few others but I was too late, never mind, the challenge themes helped the card come together.
Thanks for popping by and as always any comments you take the time to leave are greatly appreciated.

Hi there, I hadn't realised you were going through family traumas, how awful for you all, although I had noticed you were absent from blogland. You obviously haven't lost your touch as your card is beautiful. I hope everything improves quickly for you and your family and if you've got time to hop over before Sunday I have some blog candy on offer, x

This image is by Mo Manning. Funny thing is I made a card with her and posted it this morning. I really like the lace you have added and the way you embossed her wings. Such a lovely card. Thanks for joining us at Cardmadfairy Digi Days.
