A Card for LOV Challenge - "Spring Colours"

Good Morning Everyone, I hope that the snow isnt to bad where you are, we had a layer of it to and then yesterday it had turned to ice which was ten times more dangerous, and as we had planned to go and do our monthly shop it was very scarey getting of our estate, luckily someone had been out and scattered some salt and grit so it wasnt as bad as I expected, though poor hubby had to remove all the ice from the car windows and that took time.
Anyway todays card which has been made for a few days is for this weeks "Spring Colour" Challenge from LOV and Ive used this sweet fairy for my card, Ive coloured her with my copics then cut her out with a oval die, the mount is the new Cheery Lynn Swedish Spring Oval die, (I have noticed it must have moved after I stuck it to the card with some silicone glue.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, the two papers I have used are from the First Edition "Spring Drop" paper pad, Ive also wrapped a wide pink ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount. I then positioned my mounted image to the right of the card and created a flower spray of several sized roses in the top left hand corner and stuck them to the card with some silicone glue and some punched out rose leaf.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
