A Card for LOV Challenge - "A Sketch by Bev"

"Good Moaning All", I hope you smiled at that greeting remember "Allo Allo" the French Farce, that so called policeman who was a English person trying to speak French, Im afraid my French would sound like that to. Anyway good morning everyone, hope you are all ready for yet another day, its cloudy here in Gloucestershire and Im sure we are in for some more rain, oh well such is life.
Todays card is created for the Lili of the Valley Challenge "A Sketch by Bev" and Ive used this sweet pair for my image, which I stamped onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens then used a circle Nestabilitie to cut it out, I also used a scalloped circle for the mount and the sentiment which is another of the LOV stamps.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of mauve pearlescent card and the first paper is from Donna's brand new Vintage Lace Cd, and the other two are from her Spring Delights and Spring and Summer Stripes, you will find them here on her website. Ive mounted up the card according to the sketch and wrapped ribbon and lace around the middle then positioned my image towards the right with the sentiment above on the left.
To finish of I then made up a bow that I attached with some silicone glue and a spray of two roses at the bottom on the right and one at the top on the left around the image.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
