Aurora Wings "Bluebell Sprite"

Good Afternoon Crafters, and as its only hours away Happy New Year as well, I hope its a even better one for you than the last one. Ive been busy just lately making my DT cards and this was one that I had extra and I thought I would create a card with it.
Its the Aurora Wings "Bluebell Sprite" and I have a very dear friend who lost her hubby this year who absolutely adores them and will make special trips to woods to see them when they are in full bloom, for me I love the smell as well and this little image is so right to.
I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, Ive tried to get the blue/mauve colour as possible as Im not sure they are totally blue, and I have white ones and pink ones in my garden. I then cut her out with my Nestabilitie Die Lables No.8 and then a fancy one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and I have mounted this onto a piece of blue card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is blue card and the papers are from Wild Roses "Bluebell" paper pad and the second paper is just a strip thats been punched down the edge and placed on the right and then on top I have place some die cuts from Wild Rose and Nestabilitie dies.
I then placed my mounted image towards the left and the sentiment was placed at the bottom on the right and the last flourish are the three dark blue gems in the left hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
