A Card for the Just Magnolia Challenge - "Hot and Spicy"

Good Morning Girls, hope you are enjoying your bank holiday, at least yesterday was dry and sunny, and my hubby and I went out for a lovely walk around the rec and the adjoining fields, we even had a hanger on for one of the fields a big black standard Poodle, not sure who he belonged to, but he seemed to enjoy our company as much as we did, but he did dissappear as quickly as he had appeared so weve no idea who he belonged to.
Todays card is created for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge "Hot and Spicy", Ive used this lovely image of Tilda eating a Ice Lolly, Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, after which I cut her out with my Oval Nestabilitie die, and used my catseye inkpad to distress the edges, Ive layered her up onto a piece of orange card, the sentiment is another of the Just Magnolia stamps and Ive done the same with this as I did the image.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of yellow card, and one of three papers from the new Donna of Bearly Mine Designs they are a yellow spotted one, a very pretty yellow rose one and the striped one in the centre, these were layered up according to a sketch I found I think its probably Bevs one but carnt be completely sure at the moment without checking, I do apologise Bev.
Across the gap between the two bottom papers Ive stuck a line of flowers that I first put through my Xyron sticker maker, I then positioned my mounted image in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. I created a corner spray out of my flowers that I have in my stash, there are roses, cherry blossoms, babys breathe and a couple of others, they were then stuck to the corner with some silicone glue.
Ive entered this card into the Just Magnolia Challenge:-
