Card for LOV and Wild Orchid Challenges

Good Morning All, hope your getting ready for a numb bum watching the Royal Wedding Im of to watch at 10am so this is a quick post today. And so Ive created this card for two challenges Lili of the Valley "Love is in the Air" and Wild Orchids "White plus two with a Twist" and Ive used this sweet pair of rabbits for my card, Ive stamped it onto white card then coloured it with my Tria Pens, and then used Nestabilitie Die No.3 to cut it out then used the die to draw around and create the mount, the sentiment is one of the LOV circular sentiment stamps and this has been cut out with the circle dies and mounted on a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of pink pearlescent card and then one of two papers from the Forever Friends paper pack, the first paper is an all over pink background with white and pink flowers on, the second is a strip of striped paper and Ive used a doily punch down both sides of it, on top of this I have wrapped a pink ribbon around and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle with my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. I then created a flower spray with one large rose and two rose hips and some punched out leaves and pearl pins in the bottom left hand corner, I bought the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The last little flourish is the little pearl hearts that have been put down both sides of my card at the top.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
