A Card for Three Challenges

Good Afternoon Ladies, Im so sorry for taking so long to post a card, but not only have I been beavouring away with DT cards I also went out for the day yesterday so Im really behind. Anyway todays card has been created for three Challenges, Lili of the Valleys "Dawny's Sketch, Cute Card Thursdays "Receipe" which is 3, 2 and 1, and Papertakes "Ribbons and Pearls" so Im saying that this card should cover all those three.
Ive used this new image from LOV and its called "Times to Treasure" its quite sweet really of these two children reading a book together, and Ive stamped it onto white card then coloured it with my copic pens, after which I cut them out with my Labels Nestabilitie Die No.1 then Ive drawn around the die to create the mount for it, the sentiment is also from the same stamp set and Ive used the small label die for this one.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of beige pearlescent card, and one of three papers from the new Papermania's "Bird Song" set of papers, this first one is a leaf pattern with birds on, the second is a orange paper with again birds and leaves on, and the third is a plain beige patterned paper in a linen look. Around the middle Ive wrapped a ribbon and created a bow for it on the right, its the new seam ribbon thats a real wow with us crafters at the moment, this one came from a supplier on Ebay, but I know Wild Orchid Crafts has it as well.
The card was created using the sketch and Ive positioned my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment to the bottom on the right, to finish of Ive created a two flower spray with some of the left over papers, these were punched out with two sizes of retro flower punches and moulded with my ball tool then stuck on the card with some silicone glue and punched out fern leaves and four pearl pins.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
