A Card using one of the new Sugar Nellie Fairy Stamps

Good Morning Crafters, I knew I should have said anything yesterday as guess what is pouring with rain today, so the lovely weather didnt last very long did it? Oh well perhaps my card will bring a bit of sunshine into your lives, this image is one of the 6 new "Return to Fairy Glen" stamps and I have used this sweet image for my card, isnt she cute.
Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.4 and a decorative one for the mount. The sentiment has been stuck on a La La Land folded banner die.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of dark mauve card, the papers I have used are from First Editions "New Bloom" paper pad, the first a cream background with diamonds on, the second a doily pattern with glitter on it, and the third a reverse of the first one with a mauve background with cream diamonds on it.
Ive layered them up as shown and then wrapped a piece of lace with ribbon threaded through the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount. The mounted image was then placed towards the left on top of a circle of spiders web, then I placed the sentiment at the bottom on the right and the last thing is the flourish from Die-namics thats been stuck down the right side of the card and three punched out (Tonic) flowers with some of the left over paper and three gems stuck in the center of them.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

That is a great image Shirley. The colours are lovely, I wouldn't of thought of having a red image on a purple card. Sorry you've had rain. We've had a very grey day but without the threatened rain.
