Fairies Bouquet

Hello everyone, 
Firstly I like to say a big 'HELLO' to my new followers, and 'Thank You' for taking the time to visit me, and I hope you like what you see.
Today's card is a monochrome card. I'm quite happy using a grey scale but introduce a colour and for some reason I panic! Anyway I had a go at using blues!
The image is 'Fairies-Bouquet' from Lili of the Valley and I've coloured her with my promarkers. How could I do a fairy without adding glitter to her wings!!
The background papers are from Papermania. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and the flowers a Joy!crafts die with card candi centres. I finished off with a bit of ribbon and some bling from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

Thank you for visiting my little blog today and for all your lovely comments. I love reading them and really appreciate you taking the time to leave them.
That's all for now!
