A Card for the Whiff of Joy Challenge - Donalda's Sketch

Good Morning Ladies, the sun is out and not a cloud in the sky what do you reakon? is it going to be a lovely day, lets keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best. Ive created this card for the Whitt of Joy Challenge Donalda's Sketch I just hope she feels Ive done it justice, and Ive used these two images from the Aladin set of stamps as you can see Ive stamped Willow then masked her before stamping Aladin behind her after which Ive coloured her with my copic pens and cut her out in a square and distressed the edges with a catseye inkpad. The sentiment is another of the same set of stamps, Ive also distressed the edges and mounted both the image and this onto two piece of different coloured mauve and lilac card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with three of Donna's new fabulous new papers from Bearly Mine Designs they really are gorgeous, the base layer is a very pretty rose and lily design, and for the two diagonal strips Ive used two more patterns one plaid and the other a vintage paper from the same set. Ive layered both of these pieces onto lilac card and then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom right hand side.
To finish of Ive created a small flower corner with a prima rose and two cherry blossoms and four tiny little flowers as well, I did try to curl the wires but I see they done look as nice as other people have managed to do so Im not sure I will be attempting to do that again. Ive also popped three pearls at the top on the right.
Im entering this card into the following challenges :-
