Fairy Fun challenge week 1

The very first Prairie Fairy challenge is here! And you can now buy the fab Prairie Fairy images in the new shop although I know there were a few glitches with the launch last night - hopefully these will all be ironed out by now, but if you have any problems you can leave a comment on the Prairie Fairy blog and I'm sure Roberta will be updating us all on there soon.
Roberta decided to start the challenge blog at the same time as the site was ready to launch, so she sent us the sketch with about 5hrs to get our cards together - although she said we didn't have to do one if we were busy, I couldn't miss out on the very first challenge could I? Too exciting! So, as we had a busy evening and I couldn't make anything until everyone else was in bed, I was in my craft room until the early hours of the morning and didn't send my card to Roberta until 2.30am. To say I'm slightly tired this morning is an understatement lol!
I've used the little snails tale image, coloured with promarkers and cut out with nestie circles. I drew around the nestie on DCWV cardstock and cut it out to get the circle for matting, then added glamour dust around the outside of the circle. Papers are MME beloved and I used lots of bits from the accessory sheet to save a bit of time - the paisley shape, love circle, die cut border, the sentiment (from Elzybells) was also stamped on one of the accessory pieces. The flower that I've mounted the 'love' circle on is a chipboard one that I've coloured with the mint green promarker.
Apologies for all my squashed up text - for some reason blogger's started taking my paragraphs out. DH showed me the html code to correct it but he's working this morning and I can't remember it lol.
Oh, huge thanks to everyone who visited my son's blog and left lovely comments on his card, and to everyone who's following him - he's thrilled! I seem to have messed up setting up his blog though, and used my profile to do it, so I don't think he can follow people... not sure what to do about that! Can you tell I'm not very good with computers really?
I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
