A card for the Just Magnolia Challenge - "A Sketch by Bev"

Good Morning Girls, well heres another thank you card being combined with the Just Magnolia Challenge "A Sketch by Bev" our Bev has certainly been busy this week with her sketches this is the second one Ive used I do think shes definitely got the creativeness for this and her sketches are really lovely to use.
Ive used this beautiful image of Tilda its from the new "Wedding" set, Im not sure if shes supposed to be a bridesmaid or a guest but she looks so pretty with her parasol, anyway Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then cut around her parasol then punched her out with my circle nestabilitie die. The sentiment is another of the JM stamps and this one Ive cut out with a heart die.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with two papers from the Kay Miller Downloads sets, a very pretty flower pattern for my first layer with a base colour of blue and the second mount is a striped paper with the same colours. On top of this I have stuck a lace strip, then punched two holes through the mount for my image and fed a blue ribbon through and stuck it to the back of the first layer.
On top this mount Ive put my stamped image and slid it into place, the mounted sentiment was then stuck at the bottom to the left.
The flower spray was then created and stuck at the top on the left and this consists of three different size roses and some punched out leaves. With the final flourish of three pearls stuck on the right at the top.
This card has been entered for the following challenges:-
