A Card for Just Magnolia Challenge - "A Sketch by Bev"

Good Morning All, the sun is out again though weve already had some rain Im hoping it wont come back but you know how our weather is like, you carnt rely on anything. Todays card is for the Just Magnolia's "A Sketch by Bev" and Ive used this sweet image of Tilda in her wellie boots, I think it was part of my Club Stamp kit, and Ive stamped her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, after which I have cut her out with a small circle die by Nestabilities, Ive had to do the out of the box technique on it so it would fit in the Die-namic die behind it, Ive also used a lace doily one as well. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been mounted on a piece of the same pearlescent card as was used for the dies.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink pearlescent card and one of two papers from the Kay Miller Downloads, I do love them as they are vibrant and beautifully patterned. The first paper is a pretty flowered one on a white background, the second paper across the bottom is a pink background with a darker pink spot on, this was mounted on some pink card. Ive created the card to the sketch, and afterwards I created a flower spray down the side of the image with several different sizes of roses and some punched out rose leaves and they were attached to the card with silicone glue. The last thing are the three pearls down the edge on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hi Shirley, love the way you did the out of the box thing with this little cutie. You've done a wonderful job of cutting her out that way. I would probably have lopped her poor little head & feet clear off trying to do that. I am soooo impressed ... You must tell me your secret in doing this.
You've colored her so beautifully & love your wonderful flowers & shiny papers.
Hugs, Janie
