A Card for the LOV "Anything Goes" Challenge

Good Afternoon All, well its been a dry day and the sun has made it quite hot and sticky, so weve used it and got the grass cut, as I expect you already know weve been promised more rain this weekend and I didnt want it to be left to grow any longer. Weve also got our months shopping to do so thats something to look forward to, not really I hate shopping its always a chore, if you think about it you move the same thing once from the shelf to the trolley, then from the basket to the checkout, then back into your bag in the trolley, then roll it out to your car, move it from the trolley to the car, drive home and of course you have to remove it from the car to the house, and thats before you even start to put it away, if you count up all the times youve moved it, it soon adds up.
Well now back to more happy things todays card has been created for the Lili of the Valley "Anything Goes" Challenge, and Ive used this sweet image of this pair and coloured it with my copic pens, then used Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut it out, then used a larger one for the mount. The sentiment has been done in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for the first mount I used the blue card, the papers Ive used are by Maya and its "Vintage Summer Basics" and the first paper is a blue background with pink roses on, the second is a double sided paper which has blue one side with a beige side with blue and pink design on the other, and I have used both of them with the other mounts.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have used six different sized roses and some punched out leaves and created a spray in the bottom left hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Very hot and sticky here as well Shirley, but would you believe that when I took a break from my desk and sat outside, it threw it down with rain for a few minutes.

Your LOV image is so very sweet and coloured beautifully as always.

That made me smile about moving all the shopping. Don' t think I could bear to do a month's worth at a time as you have to shop for fresh stuff every week anyway. Gorgeous card, I love these couples.
