Snow, flowers & a fairy......

Good day everyone. Let's start by showing you a picture of the weather we had today.
I'm not sure if you can see, but if you look closely below the swing.....there's snow falling!
Yup, May 3rd and snow in Pine Falls, Manitoba, Canada!

Next is a picture of the flowers my daughter got me for my birthday & mother's day!
We went shopping yesterday & she decided to ask me what I wanted for my birthday, as we were on our way to the cash register.............I looked right...nothing.....I looked left....& there were these lovely flowers!
Thanks Hannah!  

Here we have Baby Fairy Flora from Mo's Digital Pencil Too. I purchased her a little while ago in anticipation of the perfect card & challenges! And now's the time to let my fairy fly!  
There are many elements to my card:
1. the stitching around the edge (my 'little sewing machine that could', couldn't anymore,
thus the piercing at the top without thread!! haha)
2. stringy-type-thread thru some of Flora's pony tail holders
3. Flora is holding onto an actual flower (3D style)
4. Pop-dotted butterfly (is my "animal" on the card- hope this counts)
Butterfly is from Prairie Fariy Designs called Sketchy Bugs !
5. homemade ribbon flower in bottom corner (tutorial from Robbie who is on the
Really Reasonable Ribbon DT-I'm so excited to start getting their ribbons!!!)
6. sparkly wings- butterfly & fairy

Challenges for my card are:
