A Card for LOV Challenge - "Here comes Summer"

Good Afternoon All, hope you are enjoying your weekend, my hubby has gone volunteering so Ive been trying to get some jobs done without him under my feet, Ive painted a couple of doors and now Ive just finished my challenge card for Lili of the Valleys "Here comes Summer" challenge, and Ive used this sweet image of a rabbit swinging in the garden. Ive stamped it onto white card and then used my Tria pens to colour it, after which I used the Nestabilitie Die No.17 to cut it out and then drew around the die to create the mount out of pink pearlescent card. The sentiment is yet another of the LOV stamps and Ive treated it in the same way as the mount, but I used a small leaf stamp on the edges of both just to fill up the whiteness that didnt look right.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and on top of this I have used a first mount of pink pearlescent card and then one of four papers from the Nitwits "Super MeeWee" digi download papers, the first one a white background with flowers on, then down the right hand side is a yellow check paper that Ive used one of the flower border punches from Martha Stewart on. Then on top is a stripe paper on a piece of pink card, and the fourth paper is a pink flower pattern on yet another piece of pink card. I then wrapped a pink grosgrain ribbon down and around the card  that 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, I then popped some pink pearls down the two opposite corners and the last thing I created two paper flowers with the new Die namics roll flower punch and stuck to the card on top of some punched out leaves on some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
