A Card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - "More than one Fold"

Good Morning All, well the sun is out but its very frosty this morning, hopefully it wont take long to melt, we are of to do our monthly shop in about an hour, but first I have to go and have a blood test, and hubby has to wait in for our post lady, she likes to use our loo. Anyway I thought you might like to see yet one more Challenge card I managed to create yesterday and this one is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge "More than one Fold", and I used this gorgeous image with is own sentiment for an easel card.
I stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, I then used my rotatrim to cut her out as shes far to big for any of my Nestabilities, then mounted her and the sentiment on to blue card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of the same blue pearlescent card, and one of three papers from Donna's brand new Cd "Spring Delights", its got some really fun papers on it and this one is a large daisy pattern on a blue background, the second paper Ive used is a yellow one with a smaller daisy pattern and Ive cut it into a 5"square and used one of my Martha Stewart all around border punch set, the third paper is pink with again a daisy pattern on it and this is a strip that I used on the inside of my card and Ive mounted this also on the same blue card, then popped my sentiment in the middle.
On the front I have put a strip of the same blue pearlescent card across the middle but again used the same punch along the two edges and wrapped a piece of yellow satin ribbon around it then stuck to the back of the first mount. The mounted image was then stuck in the centre, as its a big image Im not able to put any flowers around it as it would look to heavy.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
