One Card for Two Challenges - Crafters Companion and Sir Stampalots

Good Morning Ladies, well the sun is trying to escape the clouds but they look as though at the moment they are actually winning, I do so hope it starts to improve soon as it looks as though we are in for a bit of a rough summer again, boo hoo, as later in the Summer Holiday Ive got four of my grandchildren coming to stay in different weeks so it wont be very nice if the weather continues to be so horrible.
Anyway todays card  has been created for two Challenges Crafters Companions "Sketch" and Sir Stampalots  "Punch it out" and because CC expect you to use their images I found this delightful Flower Fairy Rose in my stash and decided to use her. Ive actually stamped her onto white card then using my Faber Castell pencils coloured it for a change, after which I cut her out with one of my label Nestabilitie dies, and created a mount for her out of some pink pearlescent card, but before sticking them together I have masked off her wings and use the glitter spray on them, then used a pink catseye inkpad around the edge to distress it. The sentiment is another of the stamps from the same set.
To create the card I have used a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of pink card, and one of three papers from the CD of the same Rose Fairy, the first one has a sentiment all over it, the second a smaller print of the same rose figure, the third one is of roses and on this piece Ive used the heart punch from Martha Stewart and layered it onto of a darker piece of pink card. I then layered up the mounts in conjunction with the sketch, and the sentiment has been attached to some ribbon and stuck to the back of the first mount.
To finish of Ive created a small rose from two of my balloon punches, and if youd like to see how this is done you will see the petals being moulded on my video on my side bar, and Ive also done a tutorial which you find if you go back in my posts to last month. These were then stuck to the side of my image with some leaves also punched out with one of my punches, Ive just noticed than one of the leaves has moved from where I put it, there should be three at the bottom and didnt realise it had gone till after posting the photo.
Ive entered this card into the following Challenges:-
