DT SAMPLE-Clean And Simple Juliet

Evening peeps well this month I was sent this stunning Indigo Blu stamp called'Juliet' the detail on this stamp is so beautiful if you look real close to her hair there are little birds,flowers and butterflies on it.I was also sent some' Slim Jims' from Indigo Blu too for those of you who might not know what these are I will tell you,they are super slim acrylic blocks I wasn't sure about them at first but now I have tried them I am not turning back I just love them.They come in a pack of 5 different sizes and the sizes are great there is a nice long one for things like borders,lamposts etc. a really big one and a few in between I think they only cost about £5.50 too so I think a good price.Back to my card I have added gems and stickles to her hair,added butterflies in 2 of the corners which I added gems for their bodies.For the sentiment I have heat embossed it onto black card and die cut it with a spellbinders tag die.So what do you think?
Please pop along to Mishelflo Creative crafting for a little shopping trip lots of new stock has been added this week,charms,woodware,Indigo blu,papers etc. etc.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
