Celebrations in purple for my mums birthday

Hallo all, this card has been made for my mum for her 65th birthday this week, she is looking extremely well for her 65 years and I am very proud of her. I have used an image that I coloured a wee while ago when I only had a few promarkers but the colours were good so I matched papers and made up a card for her. The lilac card is textured/embossed to be like leather effect, and the dark purple lightweight card that I used for the larger nestibility has a beautiful floral embossed pattern on it, hard to show in the photo, sorry.
I added the stickles glitter to her wings to give her a little zing.
The Nestabilities that I used were the eyelets and the beaded circles, one of which I won in some candy that I entered at Sweet Stampin, it was purely by chance that I noticed it on a sidebar of a blog that I follow and I went over to check it out. Great Blog and fun challenges.
Around the Nestabilities I popped wee pearls, and added some lovely mulberry flowers which were attached using some pearl brads. The lace that has been popped under the main image area horizontally is from a pretty wash set that I received a couple of years ago from a friend.
The wee tag is from a freebie chipboard set from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and has been attached with a small piece of organza ribbon that I tied into a bow. The wee charm is tibetan silver and from my beady stash.
The inside I have used some more embossed leather like lilac, a papermania butterfly attached with brad, more lace and a hand made flower, made using my punches, some wetting and scrunching then drying and attaching.
Many many thanks for looking and these are the challenges that I am popping my card into:-)
PS OOOPPS forgot to say I was entering this into sweetstampin's challenge this week which is 'things with wings' doh! I think Homer might be making a comeback.
