A card for the Just Magnolia Challenge - "A Pocket Card"

Good Morning Girls, well the rain did come last night and my garden is very happy about that, today has been rather cloudy but the sun did peek out for a little bit but not for long so not sure what our next lot is going to be rain or sun so we shall have to wait and see.
My card today has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia's Challenge "Pocket Card" and Ive used this gorgeous image that I received in my blogcandy from Crafty Chris, bless you my love and thank you, also a big thank you to Phillip as well as it seems he rather likes my blogspot name and thats why he chose me.
Anyway Ive stamped the image onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens after which Ive cut it out with my nestabitlitie oval die, the mount is cut out with the large scalloped one and stuck together with some foam tape.
The pocket card has been created with the tutorial that Just Magnolia have on their blogspot this week and its a really simple design and easy to create, Ive used three papers from the Papermania's Rose Garden set, which Ive used two on the two triangles on the two flaps on the front and one on the insert that goes in the pocket. Ive also used one of my Martha Stewart border punches for the trimmings on each of the edges. The sentiment is another of the Magnolia stamps and this was stamped onto white card then cut out with a Frame die from Spellbinders, inked around the ends and then stuck on the insert.
Ive created the pocked by overlapping the front two pieces and then stuck them together, then wrapped two lots of ribbon around the whole card and attached them together under the mounted image. I then stuck my image in the centre and created a spray of roses in the corner on the left hand side.
This card is to be entered for the following challenges:-
