A Card for LOV Challenge - "Sketch by Dawny"

Well yes Im late again, you know when I was younger I was always known as early Shirley, but Ive rather lost that label now Im afraid and todays card has been created for the Lili of Valley Challenge a "Sketch by Dawny". Ive used these two friends playing together and coloured them with my copic pens before cutting them out with my rectangle Nestabilitie Die, and used a Scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment I found in my images box so Im not quite sure whose it is so please forgive me.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of pink pearlescent card and one of the papers from Donna's new "Spring Blossoms" digi paper set, and this with "Spring Flight" will be released on the 15th February, the day before "The Paper Shelters" new Challenges start, if you click on the box at the top on the 16th you will find out all about it. Ive then used two more of Donna's papers one of her spotty ones and another of her stripe ones, these were mounted then stuck to the base mount as the sketch shows, I then wrapped a beautiful satin ribbon around the middle, its one of the ones I won in Mandy of Craftyfox Blog in her recent draw, they are fabulous and Im now deciding when I can use another, soon I hope.
On top of this I have stuck my mounted image, though I do see Ive accidently pulled up the edge on the left, of well I think we all do that at times, and I positioned my sentiment at the bottom as it was to big to put along the side of the mounted image as called for in the sketch, hope they dont mind. To finish of Ive used a paper flower that was given to me and some other leaves and flower sprays to create a spray at the top on the right.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

oh this is such a beautiful card shirley, the colours are dreamy and I love the wide pink ribbon, really sets it all off. The image is so cute, I was thinking of getting this one and seeing it all coloured up on your card has convinced me that I should do just that. Hugs and thanks for your inspiration. Heidi x
