A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Things With Wings

It's the weekend so it's challenge time over at A Gem of a Challenge, where this week our theme is "Things With Wings".  My card actually uses two Pink Gem digis, Faye with Flowers and Wall.  I used the png files which have transparent backgrounds and overlaid the wall image with the fairy image in Word.

 The image was coloured, as always, with Promarkers and I used some Star Dust Stickles on her wings, you can't have a fairy without some glittery magic!
The papers and chipboard sentiment are Webster's Pages and were free with a magazine, they have a lovely and rather unusual colour combo and I thought the butterfly one was perfect for our winged challenge.  I continued the theme by adding some tiny yellow punched butterflies with some lilac Liquid Pearls for trails.
The flower was made with Woodware punches, then I applied some PVA glue to the centre and sprinkled on some yellow glitter flock.  The lacy border was also punched, using my favourite Martha Stewart punch.  To finish off, I added some ribbon, a bow, some pale pink pearls, some violet gems and a row of dots made with gold Cosmic Shimmer PVA.
