A Card for Two Challenges - Mo's and Cute Card Thursday

This weeks Challenges for Mo is "3 punches" and for Cute Card Thursday is "Anniversary" so Ive created this card to cover both.
Ive used Mo's Jack and Ginger image and printed it onto white card and coloured it with copic pens, after which Ive cut it out with the Square Nestabilitie Die, and used the larger one for the mount and this has been cut out of pink pearlescent card. The sentiment is two different stamps that have been stamped together then used a Label die to cut out with a larger one to mount it on.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of pink card and one of two papers from the Rose Garden pad by Papermania, the first one is a beautiful pink pattern with roses on, and for my second layer Ive used a square of green patterned paper and the first of my punches, this is the double hearted punch by Martha Stewart, this was stuck to the base layer in a diamond shape. The green strip is a eyelet punch with some green organza ribbon threaded through, this was stuck down the left hand side.
To finish of Ive created a flower out of some of the left over paper, with retro punches, Ive used two different sizes, then punched a hole through the centre to pass a pearl brad with a silver spacer through and hang a double heart charm from it. Then with a circle of punched out leaves the flower was stuck on top.
