A Card for Kennys Challenge - "Embossing"

Good Morning Ladies, well I hope youve been good and not bad like my little lady has, todays card is to be entered in this weeks Kennys K Challenge "Embossing" and Ive used this image for my card, firstly I printed her onto white smooth card and coloured her with my copic pens, after which Ive cut her out with my oval Nestabilitie Die, the mount Ive used is one of the new beaded Oval dies from Spellbinders, and Ive used the same kind for the sentiment but used a smaller one for this.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of pink card and one of two papers from Donna's Bearlymine downloads, the first one is from the distressed papers, and the second which is a bit difficult to see is one of the plaids, Ive actually created a square with this one and punched it with one of the border and corner punches from Martha Stewart, on top of this is a piece of silver mirri board thats been embossed with stars, these were put off centre. Across the centre Ive wrapped a piece of my white lace and attached it to the back of the first mount.
On top of this Ive stuck my image and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive created a flower spray down the left handside, with some asters, roses  and pearl sprays, these were stuck to the card with some punched out leaves and silicone. The last thing I did was position three pink pearls down the right hand side at the top.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
