A Card for Mo and Cute Card Thursday Challenges

Well Good Afternoon All, the sun is out and its gorgeous and warm and Im enjoying sitting indoors playing with my craft stuff, this card will be the last one I will be posting now till my Mondays Scheduled one as we are of to London tomorrow for four days, firstly to go to Ally Pally on Saturday, then to visit daughters and granddaughters on Sunday and finally before coming home Monday a quick visit to a dear friend in Sussex, so its going to be a busy time but hopefully rewarding one way or another.
This card has been created for Mo's "How does your Garden Grow" I thought it was In the Garden so its a bit of the mark this one but I hope they dont mind shes resting with her icecream after helping dad with the garden, and Cute Card Thursdays "Totally Tropical" I felt the colour choice was very tropical hope they accept it. Ive used this sweet image of "Lacie with an Icecream" for my choice and coloured her with my copic pens before cutting her out with the Rectangle Die and the new Nestabilitie Fleur De Lis Rectangle die for her mount, Ive used a bright yellow pearlescent card for this. The sentiment is one of the Lili of the Valley stamps and this was stamped and mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of the same yellow card and one of three papers from Donnas of Bearlymine Designs "Daffodils" arnt they gorgeous, its a special collaberation with Fred she Said, Ive used this first paper a yellow background with the Daffs on, and the second and third mounts are mounted on bright green card and are basically a green background with yet more of the daffs in different combinations one has spots and the other just plain.
I then threaded green seambinding ribbon through the holes of the mount and created a large bow at the top, I then positioned it on towards the right with the sentiment at the bottom on the left. To finish of I cut out some circles from some left over paper and created three flowers which were then stuck to the top on the left with some silicone glue and punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
