A Card for Many Challenges

Good Morning Ladies, well todays card has been officially created for two Challenges but if I find anymore around I will link to them as well, any for a start its for this weeks Lili of the Valley Challenge "One for the Girls" and Stampin for the Weekends "Sketch with a Twist" as you can image Ive used the Sketch from this challenge for my card.
The image is one of the new stamps from LOV, shes such a cutie and I know she can be used for other occassions I thought it was lovely as a Xmas stamp as well, and Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then cut her out with the circle die and mounted her onto the new Beaded Circle Diecut from Spellbinders, Ive also used one of the new sentiments from LOV and given it the same treatment as the mounted image.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and for my first layer Ive used a piece of red card and one of the very new papers from Donna of Bearlymine Designs, this set is the new one thats due out on Friday 12th called "Christmas Dreams",  and this first paper is a all over red background with again that very pretty top corner of scrolls, flourishes and a beautiful heart, and in the oposite bottom corner a picture of Father Christmas, on top of this I have used a further two more papers, in a yellowgreen colour these were mounted on a pale green card, the first one on the left is a snowflake design in several colours on a green/yellow background with a distressed edge, and the bottom on the right is again a very similar background but on top of this are several different coloured fir trees though I admit I have put my flower spray over a lot of it and its difficult to see properly.
Anyway I have positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the top on the left (though I see Ive mounted it a querky angle again), and on the right at the top is a corner piece, bits left over from cutting out my die shape. Then to finish of Ive created a flower spray with one of the new Hellibores from Wild Orchids, and two cherry blossoms and two asters all from the same company.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-

Hi Shirley.

Gorgeous card. Very luxurious looking.

A question: I have been trying to sort out your suggestionsto bring up the links to the Challenge websites. I thought I had got it sorted yesterday, clicking on the link button and putting in the URL but when I look at the blog, you could not see it. Any ideas?
Thanks and hugs,
