A New Card for a New Challenge - "Debs Creations"

Good Morning All, well its still dull and dreary here in Gloucestershire but Im hoping that it will change later like it did yesterday but I wont hold my hopes to high, oh well never mind at least the garden is enjoying the rain.
Todays card has been created for a brand new Challenge Blog Debs Creations this lovely lady is an Australian and creates the most gorgeous Fairies and if your interest in buying them you will find them here, as you probably already know Im a real Fairy nut and have them hanging over my desk and on the wall, even have a door hanging that my youngest daughter gave me a few years ago with "Off with the Fairies" on it and Im sure that makes me quite a devotee of them. Anyway the fairies that Debs creates are stunning, at the moment she has six digi stamps and five rubber stamps, but me being impatient I decided to go for the digi ones, and this is my first card and I decided to use "Ebony" mainly because it was the name of my first Yorkie she was gorgeous and unfortunately I lost her very early at seven years old because of terrible ulcers, mine you, you would have thought she was a Alsation as she thought that she was a big dog in little clothing.
Ive printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a oval Nestabilitie to cut her out, and with some green inkpads I used a small leaf stamp to go around the edge. I then cut out a large scalloped oval for the mount. The sentiment was one I bought while at the NEC last week it came on a sheet of lovely sentiments and I just couldnt walk away without it. This was also mounted on a piece of the same green card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark green card and one of Donna's Bearlymine "Spring Blossoms" Papers a pretty based green paper with flowers all over it, on top of this I have put a large doily that I cut using a brand new doily die by "Cherry Lyn" they are gorgeous dies that I bought from Joanna Sheen,  I do suggest you pop to her webshop and see for yourself there are several circles one in different sizes and even a heart one. On top of this I wrapped my lace around the card with a piece of cream satin ribbon and attached them both to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right handside, I popped some green pearls down to opposite corners and to finish of I have used several cherry blossoms in shades of cream, yellow and orange and a few aster heads in a spray in the top left hand corner and attached it to the card with some silicone glue and punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
