A Card for LOV Challenge - Bevs Sketch

Good Morning Girls, well Ive finished painting the downstairs loo, and now I thought Id better pull my finger out and start on my challenge cards so Ive created this card for this weeks Lili of the Valley Challenge its a Sketch from Bev and Wild Orchids "Let it Sparkle", she does make the most gorgeous sketchs and this one was a dream.
Ive used this little fairy stamp and coloured it with my copic pens then used some stickles on the wings and her tiara. Ive used my circle Nestabilitie die to cut her out and one of the brand new Lacey Edge Dies from Nestabilitie, isnt it gorgeous? The sentiment is one of the stampin up stamps and this has been cut out with one of the oval dies and the mount is a scalloped one, before mounting them together with foam Ive inked around the edge with a catseye inkpad.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of mauve card and one of two papers from the Basic Grey Downloads this one is called "Oh Baby Girl" and the first pattern is a pretty all over flower design, the second mount is another piece of mauve card with my second paper a stripped one in several colours. Ive then positioned a ribbon across the bottom and my sentiment was stuck in the centre. I then stuck my mounted image in the centre.
To finish of Ive created two sprays of flowers and these were stuck to the card with some silicone glue and some punched out green leaves.
This card is being entered in the following challenges:-
