A card for the Just Magnolia Challenge - "A Receipe 1 Ribbon, 2 Design Papers and 3 Flowers

Hi Ladies hope you not suffering to badly with this hot sticky weather its a bit to much for me Im afraid, well todays card has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia's Challenge "A Receipe, 1 Ribbon, 2 Design Papers and 3 Flowers" and Ive used this lovely image of Tilda with her bridesmaid. I stamped them onto a piece of white card then coloured the image with my copic pens, after this Ive used a few pearl drops on her necklace and hair piece then cut her out with my Nestabilitie Die No.4 afterwards I created a mount in the same way as Ive done before by drawing around the die onto a pieace of card then cutting it out by hand, for this image Ive used some pink card. The sentiment is another of the Just Magnolia stamps and this was stamped and mounted in the same way as the image but this time cut out with my rotatrim. I should say that I used a swirl stamp and a pink inkpad to stamp around my image and my sentiment just to take away the white background.
My easel card is a 6"x 6" one, and Ive used two pieces of pink card as the base layers and one of two papes from the Confettii range of Papermania papers, this first one has an all over pattern of paisley shapes with roses on a pink background, for the inside Ive used a strip of pink card and my second paper which is a white background with butterflies on it, this was stuck across the card with my sentiment stuck on top.
The outside of my card has the same base layer but the second one is a 5"x 5" square piece of the same butterfly paper but this time Ive used a butterfly border and corner punch on it and stuck in the centre of the first layer, then across these two Ive stuck a ribbon with hearts on.
On top of these two Ive positioned my mounted image, and to finish of Ive created with three roses a corner spray of flowers.
Im entering this card into the following challenges:-

This is so pretty! What a great idea to make a mount that is narrower(the next size up always seems so big in the single sets). the swirls are a perfect touch.
