A Card for Three Challenges

Good Morning Ladies, hope you are looking forward to your weekend, Ive been busy so far using my cricut machine to cut out some doilies with the new Cindy Loo cartridge and they are gorgeous Im so glad I decided to buy it though I did have to wait for it to arrive from the US. Anyway todays card is for three Challenges Lili of the Valleys "Sketch by Lena Katrine", Cute Card Thursdays "Tweet and Flutter" and Wild Orchids "Pins and Pearls". Ive cheated a bit with the Tweet and Flutter but I hope they will accept this little angel as a flutter image, anyway its one of the new Xmas stamps from Lili of the Valley that Ive used and Ive stamped it onto white smooth card before using my copic pens to colour it in, after which Ive used two of the square Nestabilitie dies to cut it out and mount it, the sentiment is one of the LOV ones which was cut and mounted on a double ended tag.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of blue card with one of three papers from the new Dovecraft "Let if Snow" paper/card pack, this first pattern is a all over blue and white with trees and snowflakes on, the second mounts are two strips across the top and bottom and this paper is a striped one, the third paper Ive used for the two circle mounts is another white based paper with sparkly trees etc on.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle and my sentiment at the bottom on the right.
I then created a flower spray for the bottom left hand corner of some roses with stickles on, and punched out leaves, into which I have stuck two pearl pins, and on the right Ive created three snowflakes with the Martha Stewart punches and some crushed glass glitter. The final finish is the two pearls stuck at the top on the right.
Im entering this card into the following challenges :-
