A Card for Just Magnolia Challenge - "Mina's Sketch"

Good Afternoon Ladies, Ive got to admit Ive been rather busy lately with my DT work that Ive got a big behind with some of my challenges, but I thought Id have a go at this weeks Just Magnolia's one "Mina's Sketch" and Ive used this new stamp I received yesterday morning from H&S isnt she a poppet, the hair on the two girls is gorgeous wish mine was like that but oh well what can you expect when you get older. Anyway Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used my oval Nestabilitie die to cut her out and a scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one of the LOV circle stamps Ive also mounted this onto pink scalloped one to.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink pearlescent card and one of Donna's brand new digi papers this is from the "Spring Flight" (scroll down to the last post to see the new sets) set a very pretty pink base with dragonflies on it, on top of this I have layered up two more of the Bearlymine papers a gingham one and a spot one, each is white spots and squares with a pink background, these were layered up as asked by the sketch. Across the card at the bottom Ive wrapped two piece of lace and a ribbon was then placed on top, the mounted image was positioned  in the middle and the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of Ive stuck several roses around the sentiment and the mounted image, the top ones arnt quite to the sketch but it looked a bit bare there so popped them their to.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Beautiful card & so wonderfully colored. I LOVE that sweet image. How do you buy them ? Sure wish they'd make them available to us in the US as I would be a very good customer ...
Love your work & those gorgeous papers. LOVE using Digis, not sure it's cost effective but I do love being able to buy the perfect sheet of paper at midnight without leaving my house. So that's a big plus to me.
Hugs, Janie
