Busy Blue Fairy

Good evening everyone, I hope those of you in the UK are enjoying this wonderful weather, make the most of it, this could be summer.

This is a card I have made for my Mother-in-law to give to her Granddaughter.  It is a bit busy for me, not really my usual style at all, but she likes things like this.

I have followed the sketch over at Seems a little Sketchy and the image is a LOTV die cut.  I have embossed the white panel  but it doesn't show up very well in the photograph, full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I am trying really hard to use up some of my stash and I've done quite well with this card, I've had the papers, the image, the card stock and the flowers for absolutely ages.

The inside of my card has been decorated to match the front:


Image:  LOTV - On Tiptoe
Papers:  Docrafts - Henbury Lane
Card Stock:  Joanna Sheen - discontinued
Tools:  Spelbinders - Scalloped Circle, Butterfly Circle, Floral Flourishes and Impressabilities
Marianne CreaTables - butterfly die, 
Embellishments:  Flowers and gems from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV - For Her Sentiments

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Ann's Challenge 66 - Butterflies and Flowers
Hotshot Craft Challenge 8 - Die Cuts
