A Card for two Challenges - Just Magnolia and Totally Tilda

Well Good Afternoon Ladies Im sorry Im bit late today posting my card, Ive only just got around to creating it so thats reason why. Todays card is being entered for the Just Magnolia's "Lace Up" and for Totally Tilda's "Make your Own Flowers" and Ive used this gorgeous new Japanese image of Tilda, and coloured her with my copic pens before cutting her out with an Oval Nestabilitie Die, and then used the new Crowned Oval die from Spellbinders for the mount, the sentiment is one of the Penny Black ones, this one was punched out with the small label dies and Ive created a mount with a larger one.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of mauve card and one of two papers from the Dovecraft Oriental designs, this first one is a pale mauve with an all over flower pattern, the second paper is a green base paper with a mauve flower pattern on, Ive used a flower border punch along both the edges and stuck it across the middle. On top of this I have stuck two strips of lace and over this is a piece of mauve card that Ive put through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder.
The stamped image was then positioned in the middle and my sentiment was stuck at the bottom on the right hand side. My flowers are ones that Ive created with several punched out circles and scalloped circles than Ive used silkies paint on, then I let them dry and then scrunched them up, after which Ive put a pearl brad through the centres before mounting them on my card with some punched out fern leaves and some silicone.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
