Leaving & Good luck card

I made this card for a friend at work who is leaving to join her sister;s business, I was asked to do this card for her and the brief was purple, fairy style and gothic, as soon as i had been given the brief i knew exactly what image i wanted to buy as it has been on my wish list for some time now - i just needed an excuse to buy it!
The image is from  and i love it!!! I plan to do a pastel coloured card with the image next, but for this card i followed my brief.  I coloured the image with promarkers and added stickles to the wings as i really wanted them to stand out.  I backed the image onto strips of a patterned paper.
I used some pearls and a thin strip of ribbon down the side.  I also added a couple of butterflys to the card but you cannot see these very well.  I really need to learn to take good pictures as most of the time i take my photos in the evening when  the lighting is poor, i think i need to make myself a light box!  That in mind i have just tried roping my husband into making me a wooden platform i can use to put my pictures on.... he doesnt seem to be too sure!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
