Birthday Card (for a 6-year-old)

Good afternoon, everyone!

I didn't let you wait too long this time, did I?! Thank you for the lovely messages and welcome to my new follower Virginia. These really encourage me to blog more often. Go Julie go! scuba diving in menorca Keep on blogging!

My daughter is going to her best firend's birthday party tomorrow. So I made this card. Do you think it looks too "mature" for a 6-year-old girl?!

I got this fairy stamp free from the Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine last year and never used it. She was meant to be a Christmas fairy holding a snow flake but since this is a birthday card I asked my daughter to choose a different image. So she chose a little teddy bear for the fairy to hold. The ticket sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Here is a close up of the fairy.

I coloured the image with Copic Ciao marker pens and applied glitter on her wings to make it shine. I always find it difficult to colour wings. Never know what colour to use. Any suggestions? So what do you think of this card? I like it, just don't know if the birthday girl will like it too?

I haven't joined any card challenges for a long while and think it's about time that I should start participating in them again. Thus, I am entering this card for the two challenges below:

Lilac/Silver tones
Fairy image (Hope my fairy image is cute enough!)
