A card for the Just Magnolia Challenge - "Mina's Sketch"

Good Morning Ladies, today Ive created a card for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge "Mina's Sketch" and Ive used this sweet image of Tilda with her basket of flowers. Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured here with my copic pens, then cut her out with my circle Nestabilitie die, and then used a scalloped one for the mount, the sentiment is another of the JM stamps and was created in the same way as the stamped image. I should have said before mounting the image onto the blue mount I used two small stamp tapestry stamps to crete a background around the image.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of blue card with one of two papers again from Donna's new Bearly Mine Designs, (she has two new sets coming out today pop across to her blog and see) this one is a pretty blue paper with a yellow daisy pattern on it, on top of this I have put a square of blue paper but before doing so Ive used all around punch set from Martha Stewart. Over the top of these two papers I have two ribbons down the card and attached them to the back of the first mount.
Ive then positioned my mounted image in the centre and the sentiment at the bottom on the right, to finish of Ive created a flower spray with a rose, wild cherry blossom and two asters around the image at the top on the right hand side.
I have entered this card into the following challenge:-
