A Card for two Challenges - Just Magnolia and Totally Tilda

Good Morning Ladies, todays card has been created for two challenges the Just Magnolia's "White +1" and Totally Tilda's "White, Gold and Glitter" and I sincerely hope that this card covers both challenges. Ive used this gorgeous Tilda image I stamped her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens then used the oval Nestabilitie to cut her out, then Ive used two oval dies for the mount the crowned oval and the beaded oval and mounted them up together, then used some gold coloured gems on each of the oval around the edge.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and Ive used a piece of gold mirri board for my first layer and on top of this I have layered up a piece of white card on which I have used some gold, white and holographic powder and embossed it with my heat gun, Ive used a several snowflake stamps for this. Then Ive cut if out and used it for my first layer, on top of this I have used a strip of white pearlescent card and run it through my cuttlebug with a snowflake embossing folder, then down the edges Ive used the Martha Stewart snowflake border punch and then stuck it on top of the bottom layer, across the middle I have wrapped a white gold and white ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
Ive then positioned my mounted image in the middle of my card and then stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold embossing powder and then heated it up.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Goodness, such a lot of work has gone into this card! I kept looking back at it while reading your description. The end result is well worth it, though. Did you find it quite absorbing? I know I do when I get going.
