Happy Birthday Lady Pam!

We call her Lady Kendal, our 'Little Pam' because she is little and her name's Pam. She has a lovely laptop, but doesn't use it very much, so I can sneak this birthday card to her from me and him indoors, on here a bit early, because, although she does know about Spyder's Corner, she can't always remember how to get here!
She'll be 81 this Wednesday, she's sort of a second cousin (and mum) to John and has known him all his life. She used to baby sit a lot!
I've used those lovely patchwork papers from Bearly Mine Designs again, different from before (coz I bought the set) If you missed my link on Thursday, go HERE to find their lovely patchwork freebie.
I've mostly done the same as I did with my mum's card, with the eye dropper thingy to get me some plain matching paper, so I won't go on about it again, but have added gems, butterfly ribbon, a butterfly bow, which was fitted to some other ribbon, but I pulled it off and added it here, a dragonfly charm, some tiny glass beads that I threadled (that is a word!) together. They're a bit wonky but I quite like them like that! I made the punched out flower, fern leaves, loads of Stickles glitter glue, some eye-lash wool, and the LOTV image, which was a freebie from a Craft Mag a few months back. I chose this one because Pam is sooo little, she is a fairy! (Fairy God Mother)
I coloured the image with some water colour pencils, not very good ones, they've made her face a bit orange and the paper the little fairy was printed on, is a bit thin, so the more I tried to dilute the colour the more the paper roughed up.
The Freebie Fonts I used are, on the front and inside bottom Jellyka CuttyCupcakes, download it free HERE and the font on the top inside, is called Cheri Liney Download it HERE
I think I've covered up the lovely papers too much, but at least you get to see them on the inside!
A bit weird, I still haven't worked out sizes for the insert (no, I never use the measure thingy that pops up) and it was a bit hit and miss. I thought if I scanned in the covered card, save and print, it would come out the same size, but no!
My first go was miles too small and will make a little card for Pam's pressy and the second attempt was also a bit short, so I've added some Pink Petticoat Stars first, and then the patchwork over the top. But on a good note, I managed to print out the front and cut it to size without cutting off any of that mock stitching or having to add any, as I did on Thursdays card.
Hope I'm not too late for the Bearly Mine Challenge, I think it's 'add A Charm' which I've done!
