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

Good Morning Girls, well Ive at last fulfilled my promise to create a card for you, and this one is to be entered for this weeks Mo's Challenge "Anything Goes" and Cute Card Thursdays "Recycle, Renew and Reuse", the lace of this card is one thats been recycled as I took it of a rather old fashioned tablecloth.
The image Ive used for this card is Mo's "Lacey eating an Icecream" as I felt at this moment it was just right for this weather, and Im also going to send it to my hubbys cousin in Edinburgh as an apology as the night she invited us to visit was the one that we had spent most of the time travelling to Dundee and St Andrews and to be absolutely honest I was tired and niggly so it wouldnt have been fair to put my edgy temper onto someone who I hadnt met, so I do hope she will accept this card as a means of saying Sorry. I printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens.
Ive created a 7"x 7" card with a first layer of pink card and one of three papers from Kay Miller Downloads, these designs are really pretty and some are very funky, but Ive used a very simple trio for this card. The second and third layers are the two corner pieces and Ive used two different colour mounts to bring in the colours of the papers. Ive then stuck my lace strip across the centre and attached to the back of the first layer, on top of this Ive positioned my mounted image and my sentiment at the bottom, this is one of the Hobby Art ones.
To finish of Ive created a spray of flowers in the top left hand corner and gently sprayed the large flower with a glitter spray from Crafters Companion though you might no be able to see that. I had quite a job trying to photo it as Ive also popped some glitter on Laceys dress and icecream and you know how it glares back at you.
Im entering this card into the following challenges:-
