A Card for two Challenges

Good Evening All, sorry Im so late today it seems to becoming a habit of my posting late but today weve been swimming and the day has flown by. And its only 4 days to go before we fly of to warmer climates Im really looking forward to it, we are both getting excited and I do hope that it comes upto our expectation and from what weve read on the internet its been in the 20s so Gran Canaria here I come.
Anyway todays card is for the following Challenges Cute Card Thursdays "Tic Toc" and Lili of the Valleys "Bev's Sketch" and Ive used this sweet little lass with her dog sitting on a swing for my main image. Ive stamped and coloured her with my copic pens before using a rectangle die to cut her out, the sentiment is one of the Stampinup stamps and I cut it out with an oval die as it didnt quite fit on a circle as the sketch requires. Both of these have been mounted on scalloped die cuts.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card, and three papers from Donna's of Bearly Mine downloads, and they are Flowers, Plaids and Dots, she does create some fabulous papers and I felt these were the best suited to this card. Ive used a beautiful flowered one for the first mount and plaid and dot ones were used for the two other mounts, across the middle Ive used a strip of lace which has been attached to the card with two gem brads.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle and my sentiment at the bottom on the right, and to finish of Ive created a flower spray with several sizes of roses and asters, and this was stuck to my card with some silicone glue, pearl sprays and some punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
