A Card for two Challenges

Good Afternoon All, so sorry this poor blog has been rather ignored since the weekend Ive had lots of Challenges to sort out, so I thought it was time to post a card, and have created this one for the Lili of the Valley Challenge "Say it with Flowers" and Creative Craft's "Lace" Challenge. Ive used this sweet fairy with her dandelion bits and wild roses for my image and coloured her with my copic pens, the Nestabilitie Ive used on this is one the special Edition ones from C&C, Ive then used the same die to create the mount by drawing around it onto mauve card then cutting it with my scissors. I did use some mauve inkpad around the edge then a swirl stamp just to give it a bit more mistyness. The sentiment is yet another of the LOV images and this has been treated in the same way as the mounted image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card then for my first mount Ive used a piece of mauve pearlescent card with one of three papers from the Kay Miller's "Wings" downloads digi sets, the first is a plaid design, and then two strips of mauve and green that have had the edges punched with a butterfly punch, I should have said that these two papers have butterflies on. On top of this is a strip of mauve card and this has been put through my cuttlebug and a embossing folder.
Around the middle I have wrapped a piece of lace and then a strip of mauve satin ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount. The mounted image was then positioned in the middle and for a change the sentiment is on the left hand side at the bottom. To finish of Ive used one large curly rose in white and mauve in the top left hand corner mounted on some silicone glue and punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
