A Card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge - Sketch by "Dawny P's"

Hi Ladies hope you are enjoying your weekends, this card has been scheduled to appear while Im doing my most hated job the monthly shop. Anyway Ive created this card for this weeks Lili of the Valley Challenge "A Sketch by Dawny P" and Ive used this gorgeous image that I one in my blogcandy win from Elaine, bless you love this image is so cute that I thought it was ideal for a Get Well card. Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, after which Ive cut it out with a Rectangle Nestabilitie die, and used a Scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment was one from my stash and Ive stamped and mount this in the same way.
The card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of aqua card and one of three papers from the Kay Miller downloads, this first paper is a very pretty all over flower and leaf pattern, the second mount is a striped paper with the same colours in in stripes and the third layer is a all over blue paper with flowers on to, across the middle Ive stuck a piece of lace with a ribbon on top and attached them to the back of this layer.
The card has been made up as the sketch requests and my image was then stuck towards the left handside and my sentiment down the side of the image.
Ive then arranged three flowers in a corner spray, a rose and two crochet flowers with two layers of Hydrangea flowers and a pearl brad through the centre, these were stuck on top of a couple of leaf sprays with the rose in the centre. The last flourish is the corner pearls arranged in a L shape in the two opposite corners.
Im entering this card into the following challenges:
