Tumbelina Faery

Hello all,
I hope this finds you all well and planning a lovely weekend.
I had a lovely time with all my family here for Halloween yesterday-very busy but lots of fun and my niece and nephew went Trick or Treating for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
I've been busy colouring this gorgeous image which was given away on the MoonFlower facebook page recently. I just love this image and wanted to make my card quite girly and soft as it's going to be for my son's girlfriend who is just lovely.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and used my blender pen so that the colours were much softer and used a fine paintbrush to add the glitter to her wings, the flowers and the butterfly as I wanted it to be very subtle-I don't think it shows up too well on the photo though unfortunately. I cut out the image with my Xcut scalloped circle and made a faux nestie for her.
The papers are from my stash and I think they were from Wild Rose Studio but the cover from the pack is missing so I can't be sure!
I used my Martha Stewart doily edging punch for the middle strip and die cut a swirl and butterfly. The flowers are from Papermania and I've coloured them slightly at the edges. Three little gems finish it all off:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
