Sir Stampalot Challenge - "Fantasy"

Todays card has been created for this months Sir Stampalot's Challenge "Fantasy", and Ive used this gorgeous Lili of the Valley Fairy stamp, Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then used one of the Label dies from Nestabilities. Then stamped my sentiment onto another piece of white card and cut it out the same way as my image, then Ive drawn around both the dies I used to punch out the image and sentiment then cut it out with a pair of scissors.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and for the first layer Ive used a piece of aqua pearlescent card, and then used three of the fantasy papers from Dovecraft set for my card, the first one is a very pretty fairy paper in yellow and other colours, the second mount is a blue paper and Ive used my new butterfly corner and border punches from Martha Stewart, Ive also used it on the third layer as well, and then put the mounted image on top towards the top and the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of Ive tied a fairy charm on some ribbon and tied a bow, after which Ive stuck it to the card with the aqua coloured rose positioned on top.
