Craft room redo and another card!

Whew, three posts in one day! I am on a roll, errr, it is raining outside so I had a chance to play inside actually. My next card is for several challenges and I have used an Emerald Faerie for my image.
There are perfect pearls in the center of each corner flower, unfortunately the flowers seem to have soaked up some of the pearls so they are a smidgen flat. WOC flowers in the corners and some prima bling in the other corner. I have cut out an additional wing to pop it up and added some stickles to it and although it doesn't show in the picture, the ribbon also has a slight shimmer to it. I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
Emerald faeries, bling it up
Wild orchid crafts challenge, sketch
Bearly Mine challenge Anything goes

I have also had a couple of people ask about my craft room so here are a few pictures. Unfortunately I don't have any before pictures but trust me, the floor had stuff all over it and the counter wasn't usually  much better. The pictures aren't the greatest because it is evening but you get the idea.
The door to my room with the doll my friend Patty sent me for my birthday in a place of honor.  Some of my punches stored on the wall and most of my glitter and pearl pens are stored on the door.

 This is the closet I ripped apart (had old pressboard falling apart shelves in it) and installed (all by myself Elaine!) new wire shelving.
 This is my main work table with my copics and a nice window to spy on the neighbors from.
 This is the new counter I installed (again all by myself, no patience in this girl!) but yet to put everything away. I wanted to be able to leave my cuttlebug and sewing machine out. Need to work in the space for awhile to see where everything needs to go. And in the corner is my little space for my "real job" stuff.
And finally by bookcase. I had two of these to start with but moved one out for my husband to use since I now had the closet. Again, sorry about the poor quality of the pictures.

I love your beautiful card with your usual fab coloring...The rhinestone flourish gives it that extra bit of wow too :)

I am, however, most impressed by your amazing craft room! I love that you did so much yourself (reach over and pat your back again!) as far as the shelving and all! Simply fantastic Amanda!
