A Card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge - "A Sketch by Bev"

Good Evening Ladies, hope the weather isnt to bad where you are, its still rather cold here in Gloucestershire which I rather expect its the same with you. This card has been created for the Lili of the Valley Challenge "A Sketch by Bev" and Ive used this little sweetie for my card and stamped her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens and cutting her out with the labels 10 then drew around the edge of the same size die to make a mount for it, the sentiment is another of the LOV seal stamps thats  been treated in the same way.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card with one of two papers from Donna's Bearlymine Designs this one is "Christmas Frolics" and this first one is an all over sentiment one in red and white, on top of this I have put another strip of red card with the second paper another sentiment pattern one but this time in swirls in red and white, across the card I have wrapped a piece of lace and white ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then poistioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the left hand side. To finish of Ive created a flower spray with two poinsettas, some holly berries and punched out holly leaves these were then arranged on the card at the top on the right and stuck down with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
