A Card for the Pink Gem Challenge - "A Sketch"

Good Morning Ladies well here we are at the start of yet another week, and Ive only got this and next week left before Im out of action for three weeks, which is going to be thoroughly frustrating and Im not sure how I will cope with the withdrawal symptoms, but oh well I will just have to grin and bear it and Im sure going to be busy with the grandchildren staying here. Anyway todays card is for the Pink Gem Challenge and this time its a Sketch, Ive used this lovely little image of I believe is Mimi in her party dress. I stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, after which Ive cut her out with a square nestabilitie die and then using some peg stamps have stamped a background with several shades of blue and some green leaves. The sentiment is another of Janets stamps and this one has been stamped and the background has been done the same way. Ive mounted both the image and the sentiment onto blue card, but have used different scalloped edges for them.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card and one of two papers from the new Bearly Mine Designs Peach Dream from Donna, this first one is a very pretty blue paper with swirls and shades of pink, mauve and blue in the background. For the second a diamond shape Ive used another of the papers a yellow one with again a misty swirly background in pinks, greens, blues and yellows but before sticking it to the yellow card Ive punched all four corners to give it a lace edge.
Ive then stuck my mounted image in the centre and my sentiment at the top on the right as the sketch shows, and to finish of Ive created two sprays of three roses and two cherry blossoms plus some punched out rose leaves. The last thing Ive done is put five blue pearls in the bottom left hand corner.
Im entering this card into the following challenges:-
