One Card for Two Challenges - Just Magnolia and Stampin for the Weekend

Good Morning Ladies, hope you arnt suffering to much from the heat, Ive started getting heat bumps and they are extremely itchy and sore, just wish they would hurry up and dissappear as Im extremely uncomfortable and finding it difficult to walk as they are on the soles of my feet to.
Anyway todays card has been created for two Challenges Just Magnolia's "Frame it" and Stampin for the Weekends "Summer/Travel" and Im hoping that they both feel Ive covered both with this card. Ive used the Tilda image from last year shes carrying her surfboard, and then Ive masked her to put the fence behind her, after which Ive coloured her with my copic pens, then cut her out with my Oval Nestabilitie Die, and used the large Scalloped Oval die for the mount. To meet with the Just Magnolia's frame Ive stitched with my sewing machine some lace around the edge of the diecut, then mounted my image on top. The sentiment is another of the JM stamps then was mounted on another piece of blue card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card, with a first layer of blue card, and one of three papers from the "Away we go" set from Nitwit Downloads, the first one is a all over pattern of all sorts of things you need for holidays like cases, cars, signs, cameras etc, the second one is of a blue paper blue plaid on, with both this and the first mount Ive used my zigzag stitch on my sewing machine to stitch it around the edge. The last layer is a yellow paper with holiday sentiments on, with this Ive used my all around beach punch set from Martha Stewart.
After I layered up the mounts, Ive stuck my mounted image in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hands side, to finish of Ive created a flower spray from some roses, wild cherry blossoms and aster flowers from Wild Orchids they are due to move to new premises tomorrow so Ive been told, I want to wish them good luck there.
Im entering this card into the following challenges :-
