A thank you fairy

I have to send a thank you card, I thought this fairy would make a pretty one. And I´m so pleased with the result, hope the person I´m sending it likes it too!
The image is from Karen Kindrich, a beautiful fairy I colored with colored pencils, matted it with a piece of cardstock from my stash and placed it on the card with foam tape.
The ribbon is from a strip of fabric that I pulled two threads from the center and it ruffled very nicely, I attached it with double sided tape.
I made a patterned paper out of one flower that I colored it digitally in orange to match the flowers on the main image (the bottom patterned paper is a scrap of tissue patterned paper). I stitched glass seed beads all around the paper with white embroidery floss (since I don´t have that shade of orange... something I have to fix immediately!). I took a scrap of embossed vellum paper, wrote the sentiment and added a few stitches with green floss (from the fabric I used on the ribbon).
And because it´s too pretty it deserves a front view too!

I´m playing with this card at:
ColourQ Challenge #54
Clean & Simple sketch #112
Digital Tuesdays Challenge #80: sew special
Pollycrafts Challenge #65: a fairytale
