One Card for Two Challenges - Mo's and Cute Card Thursday Challenge

Hi girls, well its been a very busy day today weve been to the NEC, and Ive thoroughly enjoyed myself, met two people for the first time that Ive been dealing with for quite awhile firstly Jill from Hobby House, a really lovely lady and of course spoilt myself with hubbys permission on her stand. And the other family I met was at the Oyster Stamp stand, they are the people I normally buy my Martha Stewart punches from as their prices are fabulous and are a lot cheaper than anywhere else on the web. I really did have a wonderful day, and of couse spent lots of money, something we wont go into as my hubby has now officially retired as of yesterday when he was 65 poor old thing, Im so lucky to have such a wonderful man for my husband and I couldnt and wouldnt ask for anyone better.
Well todays card was one I created for a very special friend of mine and as its in the post she should be receiving it very soon, anyway this time Ive used one of Mo's beautiful Fairy stamps, this one is called Flora, Ive printed her out onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then used a label Nestabilitie die to cut her out, now I know the sketch for this weeks challenge is a circle I do so hope they will forgive me for this one as the shape of my image doesnt quite fit into a circle, I have followed the rest of the sketch so I do hope they let me off. The Cute Card Thursday challenge is Dimension so I do hope this card also meets their needs as well, if not sorry I did create this card yesterday before the challenge was actually posted this morning.
Anyway my card is 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of purple card, with one of two papers from the Nitwit downloads, the first one is a pretty flower paper and for the second one Ive used one of my Border and Corner punches from Martha Stewart to create a square, its not to clear on this photo its check paper, Ive stuck it in a diamond shape at the back and on top of this Ive layered up a yellow and purple square on top in the centre of this check diamond.
I then stuck a ribbon across the centre on top of some hession, then positioned my mounted image in the centre. To finish of Ive used one of my roses and flowers in the corner with some punched out leaves. The sentiment is one of stash stamps.
