A Card for Many Challenges

Good Afternoon Everyone, the sun is out and its glorious, Ive just been in the garden doing a bit of weeding and tidying up, and Ive left hubby cutting the grass. Before I start I want to warn you that theres a damn nusiance Phishing email going around from TUBELY if you get one stick it in the bin as its worse than facebook and it will pinch all your email addressess and keep sending out invites to all your family and friends, I got stuck with one the other day and its been nothing but a pain since, one of my friends must have had it and its pinched all her email addressess and its now seems to have pinched mine, so if you do receive an invite from me bin it straight away.
Anyway Ive created todays card for a few challenges but mainly for the Just Magnolia's "Happy Birthday" Challenge, and Ive used this sweet image of Tilda carrying a presant, I have used not only my copic pens on her but also my Tria pens as they have some lovely colours in them. I then used the Beaded Oval from Nestabilities for the mount and the sentiment is one from my stash.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink pearlescent card and Ive used two papers from the Forever Friends paper pack, this first paper is a pretty flower one, and on top is Ive placed a doily not that you can see it as its under the flowers, then the second paper is a stripped one thats been placed down the card on the left. Then around the middle I have wrapped some lace trim with a pink spotted ribbon on top and attached it to the back of the first layer.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive created a flower spray in the top right hand corner with several sizes of roses and punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

LOvely card, Shirley!
I think I may have at least stopped the "reminder emails" to my contacts by going into Tubely, my account ,(didn't know I had one!) and deleting account. If you haven't done this you might want to. Its such a pain!!! Tubely needs a good swift kick in the pants!
