A Card for Many Challenges

Good Afternoon, I had a fabulous message this morning that I had won the LOV/The Ribbon Girls blogcandy and I was absolutely gobsmacked and thrilled, as ribbons, charms and LOV stamps are my favourite goodies to play with, so Im looking forward to receiving both. Anyway I thought that I would enter the Ribbon Girls Challenge "Pink and Lilac" and as they are my favourite colours I just couldnt resist the chance to enter it. Ive used this image from H&S stamps its from the "Attitude" set of stamps, she certainly looks a little madam doesnt she? Anyway Ive stamped her onto white card then used my Copic and Tria pens to colour her, I then used my Nestabilitie Die No.10 to cut it out, then used the die to create the mount by drawing around it onto mauve card and cut it out by hand. The sentiment is one of the CC ones and Ive stamped it and cut it out with my rotatrim.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of mauve pearlescent card, and one of two papers from a couple of the Kay Miller Downloads, the first paper is from the "Wings" set and this one is a mauve background with lots of butterflies on, the second is a strip on which I have used the Butterfly Border punch from Martha Stewart, this paper is a pretty pink spot one and this was from the "Sweet Sprinkles" set. I then used a piece of the same pearlescent card and ran it through my cuttlebug with a butterfly embossing folder, this was stuck down the middle of my second layer.
On top of this I have wrapped a piece of beautiful lace and some dark mauve seam binding, you will find a very fabulous selection from The Ribbon Girl and if you pop across to their webshop you will see for yourself. I then positioned my mounted image towards the left hand side, and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I created a flower spray with five different sized roses and some punched out fern leaves which were stuck to my card with silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
