A Card for Two Challenges - Mo's and Cute Card Thursday

Todays card has been created for two Challenges, Mo's "Coming Up Flowers" and Cute Card Thursday's "Someone Special", and Ive used this cute image of Mo's called "Sundays Best" in her days of the week set. Ive printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, after which Ive used Rach's method of cutting around the bottom of my image then slipping it under the edge of my Blossoms Nestabilitie die. I then cut another one from yellow card and of mounted them of set, the orange mount is a circle on which I have stuck some glitter dust around the edge.
My base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of  yellow card and one of three papers from Donna's new Bearly Mine Design Sets, of Flowers, Spots and Gingham, this first paper is a pretty yellow rose paper which I thought went well with my flowers, and the second paper is a green spot and the third mount is a orange one, these were set at angles across the top and down the side. My mounted image was stuck towards the bottom on the right, and my mounted sentiment to the left.
The rose you may recognize from my tutorial last week, this was positioned on some punched out rose leaves at the top on the left and six smaller ones were then stuck in appropriate places just to finish it of.
