A Card for Many Challenges

Good Afternoon All, the sun is out and it looks gorgeous outside, not sure how warm it is but the sun cheers you all doesnt it? Todays card has been created yet again for several Challenges but I started it for the Lili of the Valley's "Sketch" then I found several other challenges as well, so will post them at the bottom.
Ive used this sweet pair sitting on their swing together as a Anniversary Card for a dear friend of mine, just hope she doesnt see it, keep your fingers crossed.
The image was stamped onto white card and coloured with my copic pens, and I used the large mega Nestabilitie to cut it out, then used the die itself to draw around on some pink card then cut it out with my scissors. The sentiment is yet another of the LOV stamps and this was stamped and cut out with Nestabilitie Label Die No.8 and then I draw around this in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark pink pearlescent card, with one of two papers from Donna's brand new digi set of papers "Spring Delights" they are stunning and you will find them in the Bearlymine Webshop here ,
 the paper has a rainbow of pink and yellow with bunches of flowers on, the second paper has been shaped as the sketch asks and this is a yellow base with again large pink flowers on. I then stuck some pretty lace along the edge before sticking it to my base layer. I then wrapped a dark pink ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The stamped image was positioned to the right with the sentiment underneath. I then arranged several sized roses from Wild Orchid Crafts along the edge of the lace on some punched out rose leaves, these were attached to the card with silicone glue.
This card has been entered in the following Challenges:-
