Purple Fairy & Flowers

I wanted to make a feminine card with flowers, lace and other girlie details.

I love this fairy image, but I haven't used it more than once or twice, so this image was the starting point. I decided to use this lovely paper with purple roses, so with that I had the color scheme set.

A good start, but then I decorated everything upside down on the backing paper and had to do a lot of make over.. Oh, well.

I spend a lot of time decorating feminine cards, trying to place flowers and lace here and there, before I'm able to make up my mind... I ended up with some flowers at the bottom left corner, a butterfly sticker, a chipboard with sentiment and lace. Oh, and lots of liquid pearls to make the swirls!

The image is colored using watercolor pencils and the wings are decorated with glitter glue.
I enter this card into these challenges:

A very pretty card. Sweet image and lovely colouring. You have toned the mauve beautifully. I find mauve a hard colour to work with
