A Card for the Lili of the Valley and Wild Orchids Challenges

Good Afternoon Ladies I hope that you are enjoying your weekend Ive been gloating over my new Lili of the Valley and Magnolia Stamps, and so I thought Id use this sweet one for two Challenges the Lili of the Valleys "Things with Wings" and Wild Orchids "Sketch by Bev" and stamped her onto white card after which I coloured her with my copic pens and cut her out with my Labels No.1 die, and then drew around the edge of the die to create the faux mount. The sentiment is one of the new LOV stamps and I cut this out with the Whimsey Stamps ticket die and mounted this also onto a piece of mauve pearlescent card.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card and first layer of mauve card, and Ive used two papers from Kay Millers "Enchanted" digi downloads, a pretty pink paper with multi coloured flowers on, and then on top is a mauve paper with mauve flowers on, around the middle Ive wrapped a ribbon and lace ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount.
On top of this Ive stuck my mounted image and tucked the sentiment in at the bottom, Ive then used two corners cut out with the Marianne dies with some pearls stuck along the edges. To finish of Ive created a flower spray from three roses and some punched out leaves, and positioned them up in the top left hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
