A Card for Totally Tilda Challenge Blog - "Lavender and Lace"

Good Morning Ladies hope that you arnt getting the rain that we seem to be having, I will be scheduling this to appear on Wednesday morning as we are of to do our monthly shop in Cardiff so I might not have enough time to get this posted in the morning.
Anyway this card is for this weeks Totally Tilda Challenge "Lavender and Lace" and Ive used this new Tilda image of her as a little Indian girl, Ive stamped her onto coated white card and coloured her with my copic pens, Ive also used some stickles on the flowers and on her forehead. Ive then cut her out with a oval die and used one of the new beaded oval dies from Nestabilities, this was done with some mauve card, the sentiment is another of my stash ones and this was also mounted on a smaller one of the same dies.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and for my first layer Ive used the same colour card and one of two papers from Donnas Extreme Designer Papers Vol.1 this set is from the purple set, the first one is a spot one and on top of this Ive used another of the papers and with the lace border Ive punched both edges and stuck it across the middle, on top of this is some lace in two strips stuck across the middle and on top of this is another piece of mauve card but this has been put through the cuttlebug with an embossing folder.
The mounted image was then stuck in the middle and the sentiment was stuck at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive created a flower spray for the top left hand corner with some punched out fern leaves. The last thing are the gems stuck at the top on the right and bottom left.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
