A Card for two Challenges

Good Evening All, sorry Im a bit late posting but its been one of those days never really got started on this card till after we got back from swimming this afternoon, anyway todays card has been created for the following Challenges Kenny K's "Stitch it" and Wild Orchids "Ribbons and Bow" and this is one of Kennys fabulous images "Uptown Angel" and Ive printed her onto smooth white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then used the new Labels 17 from Nestabilities then drew around the edge of the die to create the mount for her, the sentiment is one of my stash ones, this was cut out with one of the labels trio.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of pink card and one three papers from Donna's Extreme Downloads, this first one is an all over pink paper with a circle pattern on, the second two mounts are strips of pink card and a paper with a pink and blue stripped pattern on, then Ive used my sewing machine to stitch all around the edges and down the sides of the two mounts in the middle. I then wrapped a spotted ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of the first layer.
Then I positioned my mounted image in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, and I popped a ribbon bow at the side of the image. To finish of Ive created a spray with some roses and asters at the top on the left hand side, Ive also stuck it to the card with some silcone glue and two sprays of pearls below the spray and some punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered into the following challenges:-
