A Card for Crafters Companion and Sir Stampalot Challenges

Good Afternoon All, well I hope you are now back to work after a relaxing weekend, or was it one of catching up with all the household chores, mine was quiet as hubby was volunateering so I had to house to myself so lots of crafting. Anyway todays card has been created for two Challenges Crafters Companion "Girls Birthday" and Sir Stampalots "Magical Words" and Ive used this Lavender Fairy for my image, Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, I then used my Nestabilitie Die No.17  to cut her out and then drew around the die to create the mount for her. The sentiment is from the same set of stamps, then around the edges of both Ive used some swirl stamps with several different shades of lilac.
The card size is 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of lilac pearlescent card and Ive used two papers from the Flower Fairies Cd collection this first one is an all over pattern of pale mauve background with the fairy scattered all over it, on top I have put a strip of mauve card with another paper from the same set, this one has a Lavender sentiment on it, then before sticking down to the card I have stuck two rows of lace down the edges.
I then positioned my mounted image towards the right hand side, and the sentiment at the bottom on the left. To finish of I have used several sprays of lavender in a bouquet and then wrapped around the end with a bow of purple seam binding, this was then stuck at the top on the left dropping down the card.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
