Bearlymine Designs Challenge Seventeen - "Bring on the Bling"

Good Morning Everyone, here we are another two weeks have flown by and weve reached our Seventeenth Challenge and for this one we want you to bring out all your "Bling" and Im sure hidden away in secret places youve got lots of that so lets see what your cards will look like. This time we are being sponsered by the following:-

Wow lots of fabulous prizes on offer Im sure you will be able to pick some gorgeous goodies from these companies.  And heres my card for this Challenge.
And for my card I decided to use this cute fairy from the "Stamp Fairy" and have printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic and tria pens, then used the Nestabilitie Labels Die No.18 to cut it out then used the die again to draw around and create a faux mount for it. The sentiment is one of the Whimsey ones thats been cut out with a Go Kreate tag die, and I then trimmed it down and cut another one out of pink card to create the mount for it.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with one of Donna's Bearlymine Design Digi set of Papers "Summer Roses" these are such gorgeous papers and so pretty, this first one is a pink background with red roses on, then on top is a yellow paper with mauve roses, this one has been cut into a 5" square and Ive used one of my corner and border punches on it. This was then laid on top of my first mount and then across the middle I have wrapped a pink satin ribbon and attached it to the back of the mount. I then positioned my mounted image in the middle but before sticking it to the card I cut another mount with one of the Marianne dies out of yellow card and mounted them up together. The sentiment tag was attached to the right hand side of the card with a large butterfly stuck on the ribbon top.
I then put a large pearl brad through a spacer and dangled a charm from it and attached it to the card on the left on the ribbon, and to finish of I created a spray in the top left hand corner from different sized roses and attached them to the card with silicone glue on top of some punched out fern leaves. The final flourish is the two rows of pink pearls in the two opposite corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go across to The Bearlymine Challenge Blogspot  and see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this weeks "Bring on the Bling" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
