A gift card challenge

Hi everyone.
It's that time yet again for another Teddy Bo and Co challenge this time it's a gift card (a card that contains a gift.)
I normally always make cards so this challenge for me was a bit different  and I have to say I really enjoyed it in fact it has inspired me to try other things.
For this challenge I have made a Tea-Light card using the template by Lena Katrine Oien.
The paper I used to cover the front of the card is My Mind's Eye Tickled Pink "Engaging".
The inside of the card is covered with some Pink Raspberry Road paper I also  made a blank insert to go inside the card  with plain White  paper.
I cut a strip of cream swirly paper and adhered down the centre of the card I have had the paper sometime so I cannot tell you where it's from (sorry).

I have coloured TEDDYBEA_006 with Polychromos pencils  and added Berry Fizz glitter to her wand, the glitter is a freebie from one of my card making magazines.
I have cut out Bea  and adhered her with sticky pads on to an oval die which I have embossed with Sizzix "Cottage Style" embossing folder.
The 15mm roses are from WOC  and the white flowers are from The Ribbon Girl.

For the Tea-Light holder I have decorated either side on the top with  White  Daisy Lace this is from Pinflair I adhered Pink seed beads to the centre of each daisy the beads are from Framecraft.
I have glued light Pink 10mm satin edge organza ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons to the back of the card  and tied it into a bow at the front to hold the Tea-Lights in place.
Thank you for letting me enter my creation  and thank you for all the comments I recieve from you lovely crafters.
Until next time.
Big Hugs.
