A Card for Crafters Companion Challenge

Good Morning Ladies well here we are again with yet another challenge card, this one is for the Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge, a sketch by our dear friend Bev, a really lovely design and I hope Ive done it justice. I was lucky enough to win the last challenge and this is the stamp I chose its called Patchwork Polly, and Ive stamped her onto smooth white card and coloured her with my copic pens then cut her out with my circle die and mounted her onto a piece of pink scalloped card. The sentiment is from the same set of stamps a really lovely one, this was also mounted onto a square scalloped card.
The card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of pink card, Ive used three of the papers from the Crafters Companion Florals Cd, the first one is an all over daisy pattern, and then on top of this the second mount is a pink, blue and white check pattern, and this was stuck on top of the first mount as the sketch shows, across the centre Ive used these two and another daisy paper to create three strips that have been punched with the lace edged Martha Stewart border punch and then across the top of these three Ive stuck a gingham ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre, and my sentiment below it in the middle. The floral arrangement is a very large red/pink daisy with four asters arranged either side of it, this was stuck to the bottom right hand corner of the mount. Ive also created a swirl in the top left hand corner with some pink gems and my Bazzil design cards.
This card is to be entered for the following Challenges:-
