A Card for Several Challenges

Good Afternoon All, Im so sorry Ive not posted since Thursday but yesterday was extremly busy, I had several cards to create for my DT work and I wanted to try and get myself sorted out, I also had the washing to deal with to. Anyway enough excuses I have tried to rectify it today by making this card for several challenges and they are as follows Just Magnolia's "Anything Goes", Totally Papercrafts "Pearls and Lace", Simon Says Stamps "No Cook Receipe", ABC's "P for Pink", Stamp Something "Anything Digi", and KB Cute Monday "Anything Digi".
Ive used this gorgeous little H&S image and have stamped her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, I then used the new Nestabilie Die "Floral Doily" to cut her out, I also used it again to create her mount. The sentiment is one from my stash that Ive stamped and cut out with my rotatrim and mounted it also onto a piece of the same card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of a teal coloured card with one of two digi papers from Donna's Bearlymine Digi Papers, the first one is a pretty teal blue paper with a swirl in it, the second is a pink paper with teal and white spots on it, Ive cut this into a 5" square and used one of my all around punches from Martha Stewart, this was then placed in the centre of my first paper, and then across this middle I have wrapped a piece of lace and on the top a piece of seam binding along the top.
On top of this I have put my mounted image and the sentiment at the bottom on the right, I then used my a Basic Grey mask and created a couple of swirls with green pearls in the bottom on the left hand corner.
I then created a double bow with the same colour seam binding and stuck it at the side of my mounted image with a butterfly on top. To finish of I created a flower with some of the same teal coloured card and used my Doo Hickey Hydrangea dies to cut it out, layered it up and popped a little rose in the middle, this was then stuck to the card at the top on the left on top of some punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
