Football Win and A LOTV Fairy Card

Good morning everyone.  Hope you are all good and having fun crafting away.

I have a card to share, but first of all want to show a pic of my son Brandon and the little football trophy he won this Saturday....

He's been trying to win this trophy for a couple of weeks and now he has.  We were all over the moon with his win.  Only thing is, he has to take it back next week lol.  I don't know if you can see but he has some bracelets on his wrist which he made.  They are a new craze in his School called Loom Bandz and he has to make them on a loom.  He's gotten quite good at it and has made about 10.  He wants to make a 100 lol.

Onto my card....

As you know, the fairy is an LOTV one and I have coloured her in with Promarkers and added glitter to the wings, hair and flowers.  The backing paper is Pink Petticoat Wild Blossoms set (I got 6x6 pad free from a crafting mag).  The gorgeous die-cuts are a set from Sizzix.  There are 6 dies in the set, the vine, flowers and butterflies and they are called Thinlits Butterflies & Flower Vine.  I got these for my birthday last year and have only just used them now.  I'm quite pleased with the effect they have created on this card.  Everything else is just from my stash.
