Fairy princess in her castle!

What another beautiful morning.  I hope it stays like this for the weekend!. 
So here is today's card.
Well I tried something diferent with this card!  I had some ready cut card bases in my stash but have never used them because they were too flimsy.  So I cut one in half,  Trimmed off a DL card and added the castle section to the top of it!  I decorated the DL first then attatched the castle.  The papersa I have used are from Pink petticoat and I have matted and layered with pink and green card. I have wrapped a piece of cross stitch thread around the centre panel.

The image I have used is from Karens doodles, she is justso sweet!  I have cloured her with pro markers, and layered her onto a medium sized scalloped oval nestabilities die that i have inked with green around the edge.  I have put 3 pearl gems in the corner, and hung a fairy charm from the cross stitch thread.

The castle top took quite some time as I had to measure and shape the triangles.  Aghh Not sure I will do another one in a hurry,  but I think i like the effect now that I have done it. The fairy wishes has been stamped onto a Nellie snellen multiframe die cut which has been inked around the edge, and I have tied a ribbon around the base of the turrets.

The card ended up being too long for an envelope, so I had to make a box for it.  I have used all the papers and layered them onto a pink sheet of card and made a quilt effect and used a fiskars lace border punch down the side of the sheet.  I have then attached a ribbon and added some pearl gems.

I will be entering this card in to the following challenges recipe '1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 brads/gems'

Hope you like it.
