A Card for Just Magnolia Challenge - "Think Pink"

Well I hope your enjoying your start to the weekend, if the weather stays dry I think we might be going out for dinner today to the local garden centre in Raglan but we shall see have to wait for the Postman first then we can decide afterwards. Hubby has plans to go and visit his daughters and granddaughters tomorrow so hes looking forward to that as hes not seen them since August and time goes so quickly you forget how quickly 2 years olds and 18 month olds grow.
Anyway todays card has been created for Just Magnolia's "Think Pink" which is to celebrate the Breast Cancer Awareness month and although I dont actually mention it on my card its done to show love. This is an old Tilda image but Ive coloured it with my copic pens then cut her out with my oval nestabilitie die, Ive also used a scalloped one for the mount and this has been cut from pink pearlescent card. The sentiment is another of the Magnolia stamps and I felt this was appropriate in this instance.
Ive created a 6"x 6" easel card and used two of the beautiful papers from the Kay Miller "Follow your Heart" download set, a very pretty pink paper with hearts on has been used for the base layers, and the second paper is a pretty heart and leaf spray pattern and Ive cut them into 5 inch squares and then used the double Heart corner and border punches on them from Martha Stewart. These were placed on top of the base layer and for the front Ive used two strips of lace and a heart ribbon across the middle and attached it to the back.
For the inside Ive stuck the same square on the base layer then popped my sentiment which had been cut out in a heart shape and this was positioned in the middle at the bottom to allow you to stand the card up. I then stuck my mounted image in the centre of the top layer and created a flower spray with several sizes of roses in pink and stuck them to my card with some punched out fern leaves in the top left hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hello, I am new to your blog but spent ages last night reading loads of your posts. Your cards really are beautiful! I have been making cards for less than a year and still have so much to learn, so I hope you don't mind if I ask you questions from time to time. Can you please tell me what punch you used to make your little leaves? Thanks
