Fairy with Torn flower

That was clever! I just wrote my post out and then I must have knocked something on the keyboard and it just disappeared. I couldn't find it so have started again.
Well, it's good to "see" you, I hope you have had a good day. Mine was fairly quiet, Layla woke this morning with no ill effects from yesterday's earache, no temperature either so that was good. I had gotten up early and then hopped back in to bed and fallen asleep again and was woken about an hour later with Layla prodding me in the back. She is such a cute little character. We shouted out good morning to Papa who is sleeping in the spare room because of his broken ribs and then we got up to go see him. After breakfast I took Layla to craft with me where she did some colouring and I did some paper embroidery. I want to get a few pieces stockpiled in my stash in case I want to combine some with a bit of stamping or 3D.
It took me a while to come up with today's card, and as it is rather late I will get on and share it.
Here is what I did:
The basecard is SU Garden Green and the DP is from My Mind's Eye. I tore a piece of the DP for the corner and backed it with a torn piece of the Garden Green.
The image is from Whoopsi Daisy, a digi, which I printed off onto white card, coloured with Copic Markers and then cut out and mounted on the DP. I used some scraps from another My Mind's Eye DP and made a torn flower with a piece of the garden green behind it and also two garden green torn leaves. I used a purple brad for the centre. The sentiment is from Hero Arts called "Fabulous Birthday".
The inside of the card has a layer of DP and then another piece torn and matted onto the green. The sentiment is from Stamp-It and is called "...every day"
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
