Card challenge - Mythical Creatures

Hello folks!  My fellow DT buddy, Sue has set the card challenge over on Scrapology this month.  As the title suggests it's mythical creatures and the prize (open to those residing in the UK) is a couple of lovely Sweet Pea stamps.
I made a birthday card for my crafty buddy Maggie Virabi and it's my fav 4x4" size.  The patterned paper is by DCWV.  I watercoloured the image (Thank you Sue) and cut it out using my oval Nestability.  I added glossy accents to her eye and glitter to the butterfly and other elements on the design.  I added a small stamped sentiment, some feathers and created the flowers by layering up shaped sequins and adding the little pearls for the centres.
I made the little envelope to go with this card too.
I hope you can join in with our card challenge this month.
Ciao for now!

This is awesome Sandra. You are brave working on a 4 x 4 size card. I wouldn't be good at colouring small images. This has ended up really gorgeous.
