Oh Why Did I Start This ?

Afternoon All.
I was still sorting my decoupage when I came across this fairy with a snowdrop, and I thought it would be fabulous for the challenge at Daring Cardmakers. So I started cutting, but boy oh boy, I didn't think it would take me as long as it did. 3 and a bit hours later, I finally started to assemble the layers, but I think it was worth it in the end. I am only sorry the colours in the photo are not very good, which I think is because I used pearlised card, so all I keep getting is reflected light.
Anyhow I hope you like the finished project, which I would like to enter into the following challenges;
Daring Cardmakers - snowdrops or carnations
My Time To Craft - up in the air (I hope a fairy counts)
Secret Crafter - tons of texture
and
Craft Your Days Away - anything goes
Thanks For looking.
