One Card for Two Challenges - Just Magnolia and Stampin for the Weekend

Good Morning all, hope your are looking forward to having a restful weekend, mine is going to be a pain as we have to go and do our monthly big shop tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed the weather stays dry as its started to become very cloudy outside today.
Anyway down to business, todays card has been created for two challenges, Just Magnolia "Tent Card" and Stampin for the Weekend "Monochromatic", Ive chosen this lovely Tilda image as its getting near to Easter I have plenty of cards to create for my grandchildren so I thought Id better get a move on and do so. Ive stamped her out onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then punched her out with my oval nestabilitie dies and mounted her onto a scalloped one made from pink card. The sentiment is another of the Magnolia stamps and this one has been mounted onto a tag nestabilitie die cut.
The main card has been created from using this tutorial by Dena for the Monthly Challenge by Just Magnolia
if you click on this link it will give you a more detailed explanation than I can give you. Ive actually created a 7"x 7" one and used the Rose Garden papers by Papermainia for the card. Ive also used a larger oval to cut out the aperture for hanging my image from as the Nestabilitie dies just werent quite big enough.
I also cut out a large oval and by using my special scissors have cut a wavy edge around the outside before sticking it over the aperture, then popped some gems around it, before hanging my image from the top with some split rings.
The flowers are from Tabs shop and Ive also used some pearl sprays just to give it some extra bulk, but before sticking them to my card, I used my Martha Stewart border punch on two pieces of pink card and a pink spotted ribbon wrapped around the edge then mounted it to the side of the card on the left. Then stuck my flowers on top and my sentiment underneath.
