Design Team Call on The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Everyone, well the sky is very heavy here and I wouldnt be surprised if it didnt snow but Im keeping my fingers crossed Ive got that wrong. Anyway back to todays card as your probably aware The Paper Shelter has a Design Team Call on at the moment and we have another week to go, so if your interested please do go across to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and take part we are looking for 7 new members to join our teams so you never know you might be one of those picked to join us.
Anyway my card for today is this sweet image of a little girl on her swing called "Spring Swing" and you will find it here, Ive also used the Spring Swing Papers to go with it and you will find them here .The image has been coloured with my copic pens and cut out with Labels No.17 then the die was drawn around to create the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card Ive used two of the Spring Swing papers to layer up, along the bottom is the new Memory Box Spring Border punch and Ive cut this out with a bit more of the same pink card, around the middle I have wrapped a piece of lace and a stripe of grosgrain pink patterned ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
To finish of Ive created a flower spray with several sizes of roses in the top left hand corner then stuck it to the card with some silicone glue on top of some punched out fern and rose leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
