One Card three Challenges

Good Afternoon All, sorry Im a bit late today but I only decided I ought to make a card at lunchtime so it was a question of getting my finger out and start creating, anyway Ive decided to enter it into the following challenges Cute Card Thursdays "Sketch by Leann", Totally Papercrafts "A Little bit of Magic" and Stampin' for the Weekends "Tag it", and Ive used this gorgeous image from Whiff of Joy,  and I stamped it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it after which I used the circle die to cut it out, the mount is one of the new Beaded Circle dies, the sentiment is another from WOJ thats also been stamped onto white card before cutting out with one of the tag dies, then Ive used some mauve ink to distress it around the edge, then punched a hole through the top and fed a piece of ribbon through the hole and used a staple to keep together.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of mauve card and one of two papers from Kay Miller Downloads this one is called "Cutie pa Tutie" its a gorgeous all over pattern of leaves and flowers on a purple background, then I cut a strip for across the centre of the second paper a pink one with flowers on and used my new border punch from Martha Stewart across two edges, its called Swirling Lace and I managed to obtain from a US seller on Ebay, its gorgeous.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre and my tag to the bottom left hand side, to finish of Ive punched out two Doo Hickey Hydrangea flowers and then positioned a couple of roses on top of them, before sticking them to my card Ive used some silicone glue and some fern leaves and popped the flowers on top.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
