A Card for the LOV Challenge "A Sketch by Donalda"

Good Afternoon Everyone, I dont know about you I had awful trouble yesterday with Blogger and I had every intention of popping to visit you to leave you comments, and as one of you already know the ones that I did get to I probably left more than one comment as each time I clicked on publish comment it came up with the error page, so if you are one of those please forgive me and delete all the double up ones. Anyway I thought today that I would post a card that Ive just made for one of my neighbours who's just had her knee operated on and I suspect shes trying to excerise it, shes a very agile 83 year old and looks in her 60s. I dont know if you had a selection of LOV images that were part of one of craft magazines this month, but I was lucky enough to do so and have used this sweet image of a little girl with a bunch of flowers, Ive coloured her with my copic and tria pens before using the rectangle die from Nestabilities, Ive also used the deckled edged one for the mount. The sentiment is one of my stash and this has been stamped onto white card then mounted onto a piece of yellow card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and then used a yellow piece of card for the first mount and on top Ive used one of four papers from the new Wild Rose Butterfly Paper set, a yellow background with yellow roses and pink butterflies on it, the second is pink butterfly paper, the third is a green leaf one and the fourth is a yellow roses paper. These were then mounted according to Donalda's sketch and then my mounted image on top in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
I then created a flower spray with two different sized roses and a rose bud on top of some punched out rose and fern leaves, and with a couple of pearl pin have stuck it around the image at the bottom left hand corner. The final flourish is the three pearls stuck down the right hand side at the top.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Beautiful card Shirley. I do love this image and she's so useful for many occasions from birthdays to get well and just thinking of you (I do love an image that offers such versatility)
I have had some problems with blogger again, not all the time and not on all blogs, but when I go to leave a message I am getting error codes on quite a few sites. I hope it all gets sorted out and soon.

Love & hugs
