Challenge #32 at Creative Inspirations and a few challenges to boot!!

Hello all,
Well, what a beautiful day Saturday turned out to be.  No ash clouds where I am - well if there is I can't see them!
Anyhoo, I digress.  Today is Challenge number 32 over at Creative Inspirations and this time it is a recipe challenge.  This fortnight we would like to see your creations using 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 ribbon.  Our sponsor for this challenge is the fabulous Peachy Keen Stamps.  If you haven't been by their blog you really should spare a few minutes (or do I mean hours) to browse their goodies.
So without further ado here is the card I made for this challenge:
PINK isn't it???  Not my usual colours but for some reason I just felt like doing a pink card.  I have followed the sketch over at Moving Along With The Times which I have shown below:

The image I have used  is one of the recent releases from Pollycraft.  She is Primrose Flower Fairy from the Lilybean series - I just knew I had to have this set as soon as Paula released it and I am so glad I did.  I have coloured her in using Promarkers, pencils, Sakura Gelly Glaze pens in several shades of pink.
The flowers are made up from my stash and secured with METAL brads.
The ribbon has been tied using my Bow-Easy in a double bow and I have added two METAL pink nob pins.
I have added two flat backed pearls at the top and bottom of the long piece of DP (both of the DP I have used were sent to me in a RAK some time ago and if my memory serves me right came from the lovely Clare) and added very small pink pearls on the flowers on the image.  I have also added ultra fine Pee Wee glitter in very pale pink to her wings.
I am really pleased with how this turned out and especially pleased because it also fits the following challenges:
Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenge - Flowers and Wings
By the Cute and Girly - Fairytales
Charisma Cardz - Monochromatic
Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely
