Mo Manning cleaning fairy

Hello! I have another card for you to see today and this is by one of my fav artists, Mo Manning. I have a ton of her images but haven't colored them up for a bit but when I saw she was having a guest dt call, well I whipped those images out so fast my cats actually raised their heads to see what was going on. They are, errr, a little lazy!

The Challenge for this week is "Dancing and Singing" and I thought this cleaning fairy suited the challenge to a tee. I am really pleased with how this came out. My buddy Alyce gave me some pointers on doing pleats and the feather in the corner is in homage to her and all of her embellishments. A prima bubble dot with a little yellow bird and some lace and she is good to go. Ok, wish me luck and don't be surprised if you see a few more Mo Manning images, they are like potato chips, you can't stop with just one!
