A Card for Many Challenges

Good Morning Ladies the sun is out and my desktop computer is working again, it seems it was a plug that wasnt quite connected so it wasnt making contact, anyway Im thrilled to say Im now back in business and very grateful to hubby for sorting it out so quickly.
Todays card has been created for several challenges, it started out being for the Just Magnolia "Christmas Card" but as I went through my list I found several others that it will cover so I thought what the heck here we go, especially since I havent actually taken part in any challenges for a couple of weeks I thought I would try for several at one go.
The main image Tilda has been stamped then masked to put the Noel stamp behind her, after which Ive coloured it with my copic pens and cut out with the Nestabilitie die No.16, I then used the same die to cut a mount and turned it to put my image on top. The sentiment is one of new Whimsey ones and this has been cut with a circle die and larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue pearlescent card and one of two fabulous papers from Bearlymine Designs this is the new set "Christmas Dreams" and I love this set of papers they are so pretty and have beautiful edges which Ive tried to keep and show to its best. On top of the first layer is a square of paper which has stars and trails on Ive used a snowflake border and corner punche around it, this has been put in a diamond shape on top of the first layer then across the middle Ive put a satin ribbon and some lace and attached to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, Ive also punched out some swirls using the Marieanne diecuts and then put at the top and bottom on the left hand side and to finish of Ive created a floral spray with two blue roses and one white hellabore then they were stuck to my card with three punched out holly leaves and some silicone glue, I then used some blue stickles around the petals of the hellabore.
This card is to be entered the following Challenges:-
