A Card for Mo's Challenge - "Oh Baby"

Its been awhile since I took part in any of the Mo's Challenges and I thought it was time I should rectify this and Ive chosen this sweet image of a baby girl to make a card with. The image is available in Mo Webshop here and Ive printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used Label No.1 from Spellbinders to cut it out, I then used it again for the mount with some pink pearlescent card. The sentiment is one I found by googling "New Baby Sayings" and printed it and mounted this also onto a piece of pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and Ive used two papers from Nitwit Downloads, this set is called "Tickled Pink" set, and the first paper is a white background with little bottles, bibs and babygro's on, the second paper is a pink one with lots of flowers on, I cut a strip of it and used one of my Martha Stewart Border Punches on both of the edges, on top of this is a piece of the same pink card I used for my mounts thats been put through the cuttlebug with a baby embossing folder.
On top of this I have wrapped a wide pink satin ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount, on top of this I have put my mounted image, which I have twisted them to create a different look, at the bottom on the right is the sentiment.
To finish of I created a flower spray at the top on the left with five different size roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, and some punched out leaves, these were attached to the card with silicone glue, I then popped some stickles on the petals just to give them a bit of glitter.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
