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

Good Afternoon All, sorry Ive not been around much this week but have been rather busy making samples for Sarah Hallams new Cuddle Upz Cd thats due to be previewed on Create and Craft on Monday 7th November at 10am, you will see some of those samples on my No.2 blog if your interested, anyway I hope you will watching and supporting her on the day. Anyway I decided to try and make a card to post and made this card for this weeks Lili of the Valley's Sketch by Bev, and Ive used this sweet image for my card and coloured it with my copic and tria pens then used a circle Nestabilitie Die to cut it out, I then used a butterfly circle for the mount out of blue pearlescent card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and one of three papers from "Nitwits Cooking Goodies" digi paper set, a plain white paper with lots of spots and bubbles on it, the second is a pink background with lots of sentiments on it, and the third paper is a blue background with hearts on it in several coloures.
I then mounted the card as the sketch shows, and then around the middle I have wrapped a white ribbon with cookies and teacups and teapots on in several colours. Then positioned my mounted image in the centre, with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive used some of the left over paper to create some paper flowers that have been arranged in the top right hand corner and stuck to the card with silicone glue and punched out rose leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
