A Card for Three Challenges

Good Afternoon All, yes I know Ive been rather slow posting any cards but there are reasons but anyway I have made this card for three challenges and they are for Magnolia Down Unders "A Sketch". Totally Tilda Challenge "Chipboard" and Just Magnlia's "Favourite Colour Combo's" and Ive used the twins for my image, I dont know about you but you wander what they might be thinking they remind me of the two from the Addams Family Film, which I caught this week they are so alike, anyway Ive printed them onto white card then used my copic pens to colour them. I then cut them out with the Rectangle Nestabilitie Die and the scalloped one for the mount with some mauve pearlescent card. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was stamped and mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of mauve pearlescent card and one paper from the K&Co Sparkly Sweet paper pad, its a very pretty mauve base with several flowers on in shades of pink/mauve and aqua which I think go beautifully together. I then stuck a doily on top and across the middle is a piece of mauve satin ribbon which was then attached to the back of the first mount. The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
I then die cut a corner from some very stiff mauve card and stuck pearls in the connecting arms, and to finish of I used four roses of different sizes that were stuck to the card with silicone glue and some punched out rose leaves, I also popped two pearl pins in at the top that were kindly given to me by Linda, thank you so much my love.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
