Doily fun with Creative Knockouts

Hi everyone, I hope you're all well.

There's a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts.

Our theme is Doily Fun so we'd love to see doilies on your projects.
We're being sponsored by the fabulous A Day For Daisies, who very kindly gave me this lovely image to play with...

She's called Bitsy Bug Rosa and can be found here.
I printed her out 3 times so that I could decoupage it. I've glittered the wings using Glamour Dust and coloured the rest with Copics. 
The backing papers are some Pepper and Friends ones that have been in my stash for a couple of years I think. They're really pretty...can you spot the row of ladybirds?
I've added a lilac doily and used mat card for layering. The green panel is from a DCWV Mat Stack which I've had since I first started card making...It's one of those stacks you stroke but don't want to use cos then you won't have it, if that makes sense. I've decided to try to use up such items. 
The ticket sentiment is a Whimsy one which I attached double sided adhesive to and covered in Glamour Dust. The flowers are made with aTonic Petal Pair punch and a card candi centre.

I hope you'll pop over to the challenge and take a look at the fab inspirations from my team mates. Join us and you could win a fab prize of a $12 gift certificate from our lovely sponsors.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for visiting. Sorry I'm not commenting much at the moment. I'm having shoulder and back problems so time at my pc is a bit restricted at the moment. I'm having physio so hopefully things will be back to normal soon. Hope to see you again soon. I've managed to make an emerald anniversary card for my parents for tomorrow so I'll try and share that with you tomorrow.
Happy crafting.
