A Card for two Challenges

Good Afternoon Ladies, well I have at last been able to get around to creating a card sorry Ive taken so long, anyway this one is for Mo's Challenge "A Sketch" by Dawn and Cute Card Challenge "Whats Buggin You" and Ive used this sweet image of a fairy with her flower and bees in the background. Ive printed her onto coated white card and coloured her with my copic pens before cutting her own with the Nestabilitie Label die 16 and used the die to draw around to create the mount from blue card, the sentiment is one from my stash I think its a Hero Arts one but carnt be totally sure on that, this was cut out with a circle die and then mounted onto a larger one.
The base card is a white card of 7"x 6" and on this for my first layer I have used a piece of blue card with one of three papers from Kay Millers "Wings" downloads, a very pretty blue paper with butterflies on, the second and third papers have been cut into oblongs and the butterfly all around punches from Martha Stewart have been used on these then layered on top of one another and positioned in the middle. Ive then wrapped a piece of lace around the middle before positioning my mounted image on top.
The sentiment was then stuck at the bottom on the right hand side, and Ive used a Marianne Butterfly die to create butterfly that Ive covered with glitter glue and positioned at the top on the left.
This card is to be entered into the following challenges:-
