One Card for Three Challenges

Hi Girls, thank you so much for the lovely get well wishes you left me in your comments, Im so grateful for them, although Im still struggling to recover I decided today to make an effort to try and create a card, and instead of making several cards for the different challenges Ive made this one. I do hope that Mo, Cute Card Thursday and Stampin for the Weekend Challenge will accept it to cover all the design elements of the three, which are Pastels, Eggs and Ribbons and Bows.
Ive printed this sweet image again and coloured it this time with my promarkers, they are a little more difficult for me at the moment as I havent quite worked out the right combination to create the skin tone, I suppose with time and effort I will get that right eventually. Anyway Ive punched the image out with my No.12 Label Nestabilitie Die, then created a mount by drawing around the outside edge of the same size die and cutting out by hand. Ive done a similar thing with the sentiment which is one I bought recently from Nikki of http://bunny-zoes.blogspot.com/ as shes got a good sale on at the moment.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card, with a first layer of pink card and one of three papers a pretty all over Easter egg paper in pink from Nitwit Downloads, this was then covered with a blue second paper and Ive used my new Martha Stewart border punch along both outside edges and threaded some ribbon through them, and stuck two little bows on top with some sticky dots. The third layer is a yellow card with a lovely little rabbit paper stuck on, and this was stuck over the second layer.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre and my sentiment to the botton right hand side. The flower was created with the new Nellie Sneden Multi flower punches and some ribbons woven through all the holes, after which Ive popped a beautiful pink pearl brad through the centre with a silver spacer, before sticking it to the card I stuck some green leaves in a circle and the flower was then put on top, and the last thing is the pearl gems stuck down either side of the image.
