A Card for Just Magnolia and Totally Papercrafts Challenges

Good Afternoon All, well you can say it yes I know Im late again and if I start giving you excuses you will wonder why, anyway I wont and just get on with my post. This card has been created for two challenges the Just Magnolia's "Mina's Sketch" and the Totally Tilda's "How does your Garden Grow" Challenge, and Ive used this sweet Tilda image and coloured her with my copic pens, after which I cut her out with the Mega Rectangle Nestabilite Die and used the scalloped edged one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash its one of the Flourishes stamps, they are a American company and make some really lovely flower stamps.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of lavendar pearlescent card, with one of two papers from the Papermania Spring Time papers, and the first paper is a pretty mauve background with white and yellow flowers and scrolls on, the second mount is another mauve background but this has pink and white flowers on it. Then Ive positioned a circle of mauve pearlescent card which has been but through my cuttlebug and embossed with a folder, this has been stuck in the centre. Across the bottom and edge Ive used mauve satin ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my sentiment across the cross of the ribbons though I see its swivelled around a bit as its dried, the mounted image was then stuck in the middle and to finish of Ive created a flower spray with several sized roses at the top on the left with some punched out leaves, these were attached with some silicone glue.
This card has been entered in the following Challenges:-   -  Oh dear just missed this one.
