EMERALD CITY...

Hi Everyone,
In the 196'0's there was (and still is) a classic pop band called 'The Seekers", they were very popular way back when and they even made the charts in the UK. The lead singer Judith Durham, had this wonderful hit...hence my title which is 'Emerald City'. I really loved that song and when I discovered these gorgeous little fairies from Emerald Fairies Garden,  it took me back.....way back in time...
Here is video LINK to the song...The song was actually inspired by the Wizard of Oz.
And that song along with the cute little fairies, inspired me to make this card.
You just have to love these gorgeous cuties " Willy and Mia" which I bought today
Here's better look :)
I added the sentiment from Docrafts Papermania Midnight Fairy stamp collection
In the left hand corner of the card I papertoled this little mushroom I created, added a flower bouquet and metal 'pewter' leaves-love these!!
And finally just another picture of my card and if you look at the right hand side, there is a little metal fairy. 
Thanks so much for looking and hope to see you again:)
