A Card for Several Challenges

Good Afternoon Everyone, oh dear I know Im rather late in the day but I thought Id better create a card as Ive been a bit quiet for a few days, so I had a look around and found several that I could combine to create this card, firstly its for the new LOV Challenge "Lavender and Lace", Wild Orchids "Anything Goes" and Simple Simon Says "Sketch" and Ive used this sweet image of a little lass in her dress and boa, Ive coloured it basically in lavender and then cut around it with the Nestabilitie Label Die No.7 and then drawn around the die for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been stamped and mounted onto a piece of lavender coloured card.
The base care is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of lavender card and three papers from First Editions "Dreamcatcher" not that two of them are that obvious as they are behind my image, but Ive layered up the first paper a very pretty flower and butterfly one then used a butterfly Nestabilitie Circle die for the second layer and the third is a butterfly paper in lavender which was layered on top of that butterfly circle.
I have then wrapped a piece of gathered lace ribbon around the card and positioned my mounted image on top, the sentiment was put at the bottom on the right. I then created a flower spray down the left handside on top of a few punched out branches, the last thing was the three flower buttons at the top on the right handside.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
