Flowers, Fairies and Butterflies

I saw this challenge on the Greeting Farms Blog Farm Fresh Friday - Fluttery Floral and just had to give it a try.                                 Awhile back my friend Elena sent me some stamped images from the Greeting Farm and one of them was this adorable Fairy called, (Fairy Eva) and I thought she was perfect for this challenge.                                             For your card you had to use flowers, and at least one butterfly.  I had this great paper (DCWV) that had butterflies on it and thought it was perfect for this challenge.
My card baseis Pixie Pink layered with Apricot Appeal and the Butterfly DP from Die Cuts with a View. I also added a small piece of Pretty in Pink embossed with the Floral Fantasy embossing folder and my Cuttlebug.  I added a lacy border in Pixie Pink that I punched with a Martha Stewart Punch and stitched with my Janome Sew Mini.  The sentiment was stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink and is from the Greeting Farm set, (McSplended Farm).  I colored Fairy Eva with Prisma Color pencils and blended her with Gamsol.  Then I added some Crystal Glitter (Art Institute) to her wings and layered her to Pixie Pink cs with my Nesties. 
My flower is a combination of a Daisy Doodle Silk flower and some punched flowers (SU-retired).  I added brads (Queen and Co.) and Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain ribbon and some punched butterflies (source unknown) to complete my card.  
I hope you like it.
