Pink lady's retreat and... shock horror, I made a card!

Hello my lovelies, I hope your weekend was as eventful as mine was, I went on a stamping weekend with 4 of my fellow Pink Ladies and the new DT for Delicious Papercrafting... what did she just say, I will post about that later :) I'm such a tease, LOL!
And here is a piccy of us all on Sunday morning (I am still in my PJ's and have not brushed my hair, so it is a particularly flattering photo of me... any excuse, hehehe) From left to right we have Me, Kellie, Kristy, Debbie and Kylie. If was a fabulous weekend and I cannot thank Debbie and her family enough for letting us all invade their home, the food was sooooooo delicious and Richard, Deb's hubby, made the best drinks waiter, we were so spoilt :)
And to the surprise of both Kylie and myself, we actually got some crafting done! This is the first of the cards I made, with one of my new Fairytale Magnolias!! Yippi, I was so excited to get my hands on them.

The papers are Kaiser (I bought them at easter time because I thought they would be good for easter themed cards and then did not get around to using them) I have coloured her with copics and glittered the bubbles and the edges of her wings (which I cut out and layered up for dimension, not that you can tell in the photo!) and the edge of the papers. umm... I have added some pearls, net ribbon and a butterfly pin. Thanks again Debbie for letting me use your nesties, I so need the scalloped circles :) You can get this Magnolia stamp and lots more as well as the net ribbon in lots of colours from Tickled Pink Stamps.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
A spoon full of sugar - Cute and Girly
Creative inspirations - Punches or die cuts
Just Magnolia - One for the girls
Magnolia Stamp lovers - Make it dimensional
Stamp with fun - Stripes
