A Card for Saturated Canary "Doilie" Challenge

Good Afternoon Everyone, well its a funny old day today weve had downpours and now weve got sunshine, its almost like April, its a shame but I suppose its better than snow or at least thats what I think. Anyway Im sorry I havent posted any cards for a few days but still trying to get over the busy time we had last week and Im hoping to get back to some sort of normality by next week but we shall see. Todays card has been created for the Saturated Canary's "Doilie Challenge, and Ive used this sweet image for my card and coloured it with my tria pens then used the Nestabilitie Die Labels No.11 to cut it it out then used the die again to create the mount. The sentiment is one of the LOV stamps and has been cut out with a circle die.
The main card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of purple card and one paper from the Kaisercraft "Lilac Avenue" paper pad, a very pretty white background with sead heads on in different colours, on top is a yellow doily cut with a Cheery Lynn Pastry die and this was stuck to the right handside of the card. Then around the middle I have wrapped a organza flower ribbon with a piece of satin ribbon on top and attached to the back of the card.
To finish of I have used three lily flowers and two tulips to create a flower spray, these were attached to the card with some silicone glue and punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
