At long last a new card from me!

Wow it's been ages since I last posted,things are back on track here which is good so I will be taking part in the challenges and posting regularly again. I was so excited and delighted and proud to be asked to guest DT for Bah Humbug! and I have been invited to join the DT at Craft Cardmakers! How lucky am I?
So to business this little lady is a new stamp for me she is Willow by the uber talented Elisabeth Bell, I coloured her with my promarkers and cut her out. She is mounted on a Creatable Die which I embossed and inked with Victorian Velvet distress ink. I added some inked swirls as well as I have this problem of needing to add extras to cards!
Her wings and some little details on the image have been Glamour Dusted for sparkle and I used a metallic Sakura pen for the belt buckle. I made the card an easel card and used some fabric flowers I've had for ages to create the stopper. The backing paper is so old I've no idea where it came from oops! I added some paper buttons cut with a die I got from eBay I have a feeling this could be the best 99p I've spent for a long time.
I am entering the card in the following challenges:
Thanks for looking and I love reading any comments you are kind enough to leave.
