A Card for LOV Challenge - "Anything but Square"

Good Morning Ladies, well the sun is trying to come out but whether its going to stay is another thing, its still very cold outside and Im not looking forward to more snow so lets hope it doesnt come, hubby is volunteering tomorrow and he gets very cold and when it does.
Todays card is for the Lili of the Valley Challenge "Anthing but Square" and Ive used this sweet image that was given to me by a very special friend, she knows who she is, bless you my love and thank you, you are a real true and a wonderful friend. Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then used my Nestabilitie Label Die No.1 to cut it out, then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is another of the LOV stamps, and this one has been cut out with the rotatrim and Ive used a corner punch to round of the corners, Ive also used a lilac inkpad around the edge to distress it.
The main card is a 5"x 6" white card which has been cut out with one of the Go Kreate shaped dies, I also used a smaller one for the mount and the one paper Ive used is from Donna's new "Floral Fantasy" Bearlymine Design Papers, these will be available from next week, they are stunning as Ive already announced she has two brand new sets and is working on three more. I should also like to say that Donna has some copic pens as blogcandy so if you really would like to take part click on the link at the  top of my blog on the right hand side.
One top of this Ive wrapped a lilac satin ribbon around the middle and positioned my mounted image on top and the sentiment at the bottom on the left hand side. To finish of I created a flower spray with three roses and punched out leaves this was stuck on the card at the top on the right handside with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
