A Card for Just Magnolia and Totally Papercrafts Challenges

Good Afternoon Ladies, well yes I know Im late again, but weve been swimming today and I got a bit behind with my jobs, so anyway Im here now so please forgive me. Todays card has been created for the Just Magnolia "Ribbons" and  Totally Papercrafts "Friendship" Challenges, and Ive used this new image of Tilda for my card, Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards Ive used the oval die to cut her out and used a scalloped one for the mount, both of these are the Nestabilitie Dies. The sentiment was one from my stash thats been stamped onto white card then cut out with my rotatrim, Ive also done the same with the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for the first mount Ive used a piece of blue pearlescent card, and I am using two papers from the brand new digi paper set called "Spring Blossom" from Donna's Bearlymine Designs, these will be available on the 15th February, and believe me this set and the second one "Spring Flight" are stunning, I will be using the papers from that set in the future and you will see what I mean. This first paper has a base of blue, yellow and green with daisy flowers all over it, the second paper I have stuck on top of a piece of the same blue card that Ive used a large heart border punch from Martha Stewart, this was stuck down the card towards the right hand side, and the second paper is a pretty blue base with yellow hearts and blue flowers on it, on top of this I have put another piece of blue card thats been put through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder.
I then wrapped a blue satin ribbon around the middle with a piece of lace underneath it, then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment below. I created a flower with the Doo Hickey Hydrangia die, and stuck it on the card at top of some punched out leaves and a small rose in the middle. The final thing is the two blue heart gems at the bottom on the left.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
