A Card for Mo's Challenge "Bingo"

Good Morning Everyone, wow what a cold night, it was 8 degrees below zero here in Gloucestershire, though the sun is out now its still cold outside, and everywhere is icy so you have to watch where you put your foot. We had to take Missy to the vets this morning as weve been having problems getting her to eat, shes not the easiest of dogs at the best of times but for the last few days shes really not wanted to eat her meat only her treats. Anyway he gave her a good going over and because shes only just coming out of her first season he thinks shes experiencing a phantom pregnancy, luckily its only a mild one but he says as weve already booked her in to be spayed in April he would have suggested to have her done as she was most likely to experience these each time she has a season and it will only get worse, so thats a relief at least we now know weve done the right thing. Even that visit cost us £21. just for the advice and no treatment, so lets hope she soon comes out of it.
Todays card has is for this weeks challenge over on Mo's and this one is a combination bingo and Ive chosen, diecuts & punches, lace and gems, and Ive even popped a diecut flower on there to. This little mite is "Adele" and Ive coloured her with my copic pens then used Nestabilitie Die No.18 to cut her out then drew around the die to create the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green pearlescent card with one paper from the Kay Millers "Wishful Thinking" digi paper set, a very pretty green and yellow pattern background, then Ive used the new Spring Border Die from Memory Box, and around the middle I have wrapped a piece of lace with a ribbon on top.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle, with the sentiment below. To finish of Ive used two more of the papers from the same set of and one of the blossom dies from Nestabilities and wound it up and stuck it at the top on the left with three punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
