A Card for two Challenges

Good Morning Ladies, todays card has been created for two Challenges Lili of the Valleys "New Beginings" and Wild Orchids "Bev's Sketch", Ive used this beautiful image from LOV of a babys Christening. I coloured her with my copic pens, then used the oval Nestabilitie to cut her out and created a mount out of pink pearlescent card, the sentiment was created on my computer and cut and mounted in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and two papers from Nitwits Downloads called "Tickled Pink" a pretty flower paper and then on top a white patterned paper with bibs, babygro's bottles, pins etc on, and both of these were mounted on pink pearlescent card as well. I then wrapped a piece of lace around the middle with a pink satin ribbon on the top. I also created a bow from a piece of the left over ribbon.
The mounted image was positioned in the middle and the sentiment to the side, I then created a flower spray with different sized roses from Wild Orchid and punched out fern leaves this was stuck at the top on the left.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
