Lili of the Valley Challenge - "A Thank You" Card

Good Afternoon Everyone, well how about this two cards in one week I must be pushing my luck here, anyway heres a card forthis weeks LOV Challenge "Thank You" and Ive used this sweet image of a Teddy Bear with a flower and card, its one of the freebie images from one of the Craft Magazines. Ive coloured it with my promarkers and flex markers that turned up this morning, theyve certainly got nice nibs though not a lot of choice in the colours at the moment. Ive then cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto a piece of green pearlescent card, the sentiment is one from my stash and this has been cut out with a small Go Kreate Tag Dies and mounted again onto a mount of the same card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my firstmount Ive used a bit more of the same green card and one of three papers from the Echo Park "Victoria Gardens" papers a pretty white paper with spiral flowers all over it in several different colours. I then used a green leaf paper on a white background and cut it into a 5" square then used my leaf corner and border punches from Martha Stewart, the last mount is a strip of yellow paper on top of a another piece of the same green card.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the tag which has a piece of green seam binding popped through the hole and then stuck to the right hand side of the image. To finish of I created a flower with the new Die Namics flower and this was stuck to the card on top of some punched out green leaves in the top right hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
