Flower Fairy in the Style of Becky

I have been a long admirer of Becky Hetherington's card style and thought I would have a go today at imitating it. Whilst she does shabby chic so beautifully, I always struggle with it as my OCD for neatness doesn't like the messy edges, but I tried to ignore them today and jumped in with both feet. This card is for The Ribbon Girl's Lili of the Valley Challenge for April, Anything Goes.

And here she is. I used Becky's idea of the row of pearls at the top and the roses at the bottom and added some butterflies, flowers and leaves that I made with some crafting clay last week. The flowers were coloured with a Copic markers to match and they came out pretty close!
