MY TYPE OF SUMMERTIME WITH A BESTIE

Hi all this is my second posting for today please do checkout my Digital Delights DT card below, I am not a lover of sitting by the beach so to me this image depicts my kinda Summer.  
For my card today I have used a Sherri Baldy Bestie Image called 'Little Pixie Fancy Pants' I only bought her yesterday but could not wait to colour her in, I started this card at around 4.15 am this morning I coloured her with Graph It Markers and added a few little pearls to her hat, omg I love these hats and could have done with one this morning when I took Jess out for her run, it was so hot, it was alright for Jess as I take her along the brook and she jumps in and out of the water, lol, always makes me laugh, anyhow back to my card details, 
I have used a white 7 x 7 card base, the papers are LOTV and have been mounted onto black card as is the image, the second layer of card and paper I actually put through the die cutting machine and used my Tonic lattice die, I have added numerous pearls in different shapes and sizes also added a wired pink butterfly ribbon, large crystal gem, Joy Butterfly die cut border, lace, flower and some Cosmic Shimmer Gold PVA glue to the butterflies.
A closer look at the image 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
