Cutie Pie Fairy Card

I would like to share this cutie pie with you. My little niece Eva is just 2 and when i saw this image it made me think of her. She is off to a party this week for one of her little friends at nursery, and i offered to make a card. The truth is i have been wanting to use this image all week, so it gave me the excuse i needed. Eva is a real character. Emily my youngest collected Eva on Monday with my mum, Eva was hungry and asked for a sandwich. " whats the magic word " mum was expecting please, OH no Eva said, ABRACADABRA, while she threw her arms in the air like she had a magic wand.
