Commissioned Card for my Son's Workplace

My son has one of his colleagues leaving very soon so they wanted an A4 card that everyone could sign and guess who they came to????  This time I have used the My Craft Studio Professional Walk in Wonderland and picked some of the gorgeous fairy images.  The front of the card I printed onto gloss photo paper and decoupaged the leaves and the fairies' wings.  I made the sentiment on the computer using various colours on the same CD so it toned in very well.  Inside the card I used one of the background and added a fairy which I flipped on the right hand side.  I'm annoyed with myself I forgot to flip the background as well but hey ho there's no changing it once it's stuck down.  The back of the card has another image which I reduced from 100% opacity to 15% so I could put the verse on top.  The last picture shows the decorated envelope.  I did this for the first card I did for my son's workplace and they liked it so much I have to do it each time.  The card is finished off with card candy, flowers, fibres, I have used my Sakura Clear Stardust pen in lots of areas to highlight and finally another "love in my life" Papermania glitterations in various places.

This card fits the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations - Fairy
Totally Gorjuss - Round and round - I have done round sentiments on the card and envelope and there are also round card candy and round Papermania glitterations on the card
Meljen's Designs - Flowers and blooms
One Stop Craft - Summer breeze.
