A Card for the Totally PaperCrafts Challenge

Good Morning Ladies hope that you are enjoying your weekend, the weather is still threatening some more snow but hopefully it will pass us by but I wouldnt bank on it. Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks challenge by Totally Papercrafts, its to be in "Untraditional Colours" and Ive chosen pink, lime green and lavendar hope you like the results.
I used this cute image of Tilda with the deer horns on her head then masked her and stamped the Noel stamp so its behind her, then coloured her with my copic pens, because the image was to big for my Nestabilities I cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto a piece of lavendar pearlescent card, the sentiment is one of the new LOV seal stamps and this was also mounted in the same way.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of lavendar card with one of five papers from the Kay Millers "Winter Magic" downloads, its got lots of different colour Christmas papers and the first one Ive used is the lavendar one with flowers on, and the second paper Ive used is a lime green one with trees on this was cut into a 5" square and Ive used the holly all around punches and then laid it on top of the base layer, on top of this Ive put a oblong piece in pink card with a third paper this one is a pink design like the lavendar one, and across the middle is yet another design, this one again in lavendar circles one a white background and Ive used the same holly punch along the edges of this one, then on top Ive used my last paper a sentiment one in several colours on a white background.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle and my sentiment at the bottom on the right, I also cut two swirls with my Marieanne dies and these were put on the left hand side top and bottom of my card with a few mauve pearls positoned amount the swirls. Then to finish of Ive created a flower spray with one hellibore and two sprays of purple heather mounted on some silicone glue a some punched out holly leaves, the last thing Ive done is run some purple stickles around the petal edges and in the heather flower centres.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
