A Card for Just Magnolia Challenge - "Anything Goes"

Good Afternoon Ladies, sorry Im so late today but Ive been trying to get this finished for a couple of hours but I think I must be getting slower in my old age. Todays card is for Just Magnolia's "Anything Goes" with Buttons, and Ive used this lovely H&S image and coloured her with my copic pens before cutting out with my rotatrim and did the same with the mount, the sentiment is one out of my stash, sorry I carnt remember whos it is.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue pearlescent card and one of two papers from Kay Miller Download "Its a Spring Thing" a fabulous set of bright and cheerful papers, the first being a blue base with yellow and white flowers on, the second is a blue paper and Ive used a Martha Stewart large heart border punch down both edges, on top Ive put a strip of yellow pearlescent card and before sticking it down I ran it through my cuttlebug and a heart embossing folder. I then used my sewing machine to sew around both the edges of the base card and around my image, after which I stuck the image in the middle with the sentiment underneath.
I found five heart buttons and strung them in a row on some thread and stuck them beneath the image, and then for the final flourish I created a flower spray with some roses and punched out fern leaves and attached to the top on the left handside.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
