A Card for Many Challenges

Good Afternoon Ladies, I must apologise for not posting anything for the last few days, I have been working and Ive been creating cards for my DT work so thats why I havent had time to post anything on here. But today I thought Id better get my finger out and make something for several Challenges at once, and this one will be firstly for the Just Magnolia Challenge a sketch by Donalda, Totally Papercrafts "Add a Heart", CES Challenge "Angels and Fairies" and Stamp Somethings "Cute Somethings" and I think this sweet H&S image covers all of those.
Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, I then used glossy accents on the hearts (Im afraid I rather smudged the one of the sentiment, not that it shows when you look at it, but the flash rather shows it unfortunately) and some white puffy stuff on the edges of her dress and sleeve, and some glitter on her wings. I then cut it out with my circle Nestabilitie and used a Scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and I dont remember whos it is at the moment sorry.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of pale green pearlescent card and two papers from the Kay Miller Download "Capes and Bliss" two papers with different base colours but with the same flower pattern on, I then used a piece of lace around the middle and attached it to the back. To finish of Ive used a large daisy and some punched out leaves to attach it to the bottom of my card on the left with some silicone glue, then popped six green pearls down the other two opposite corners.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
