Well another Card to cover Two Challenges - Totally Tilda and Stampin for the Weekend

Hi Ladies, well I had a hell of a job to photo this card it kept making the image look blury I even asked my hubby to help and this is the best we can do. Anyway this card has been created for two challenges the new Totaly Tilda "Cream and Chocolate" and Stampin for the Weekends "Christmas in July" I sincerely hope that both these challenges will accept my card.
I used an image that was sent to me in some blogcandy and the paper is a bit different to what I normally use so I suspect thats why I was having problems with the blur on the image, anyway Ive coloured her with my copic pens and cut her out completely.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of brown card and one of three patterns from the Nitwit Downloads, the first one a very pretty all over leaf pattern in a couple of shades of brown on a cream base, the second layer is a plain paper with an embossed pattern on and Ive wrapped some beautiful lace around this piece that I received in my blogcandy from Chris, and the third a small brown and cream gingham, both these were stuck to brown card. I should have also said that Stampin for the Weekend had a sketch to create to and as much as I can I have, because the image is a sitting down one Ive created a frame for her to sit in, this has been done by punching a deckle edged rectangle with a plain piece for the mount, but Ive used some small peg stamps on this to take away the plainess of it and then stuck my image on the edge of the bottom to create a seat.
To finish of Ive created a flower spray with one Prima flower and some punched out leaves, this was stuck at the top on the right. The last thing is my sentiment which was positioned at the bottom on the left.
I will be entering this card for the following challenges:-
