A Card for LOV Challenge - "Glitter and Glitz"

Good Morning Ladies, hope that you are fit and well today, it was such a beautiful day yesterday not sure what today is going to be like it was certainly very frosty first thing for sure I do hope that youve not got snow in your neck of the woods today as I think its to early in the winter for that, but I suppose it doesnt matter what I think.
Todays card has been created for the LOV challenge "Glitter and Glitz" and Ive used this gorgeous little miss throwing a tantrum, and yes most of my daughters and granchildren have all carried on like this so its not surprising that it appealed to me. Anyway Ive stamped her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, then used some fine glitter on her skirt and tiara, then cut her out with my square Nestabilitie die, Ive then cut a mount out of a piece of lime green card and used the scalloped one for this. The sentiment was generated on my computer and printed it out onto white card before using a rectangle die on this and a scalloped one for the mount.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with three papers from Kay Miller Downloads "Its a Spring Thing" she does create some fabulous papers and this set is not exception, Ive used a lime green background with small flowers on, the second and third mounts have been covered with first a yellow gingham on one and another flower paper but this time in white with multi coloured flowers on, across the middle I have wrapped a piece of lace and attached it to the back of the first mount.
Ive then positioned my mounted image towards the right hand side, and my sentiment at the bottom on the left. To finish of Ive created a ribbon flower with a strip of lime green organza ribbon and on top of this Ive popped a net flower thats got beads in the centre, this is one of the Prima ones. I had to use ribbon as this card is destined for a child and I didnt think they would approve of my usual flower sprays, so lets hope they will like this ribbon flower instead.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
OPPS to late for last weeks challenge, never mind hope you like the card.
