A Card for Mo and Cute Card Thursday Challenges

Good Afternoon Everyone, well the sun is out but its rather chilly in the wind, but at least its dry, lets hope it lasts and tomorrows big event is not rained on as weve been promised it would be such a shame if it did. Im really excited about it and will be watching with my nose to the TV tomorrow and I suspect a lot of you will be to.
Anyway todays card has been made for Mo's "Girly" and Cute Card Thursday "Sketch" (this is has been created using the Challenge posted on the 24th March) Challenges, Ive used this little madam who Mo has called "Diva" and Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour her, I then used the Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut her out and again used the same die to draw around and create the mount for her. The sentiment is one of CC ones and Ive stamped and mounted it in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount Ive used dark mauve pearlescent card with one of three papers from Kaisers "Lilac Avenue" paper collection, the first paper is a dark mauve pattern with a glittered pattern on, on top of this I have used a second paper which has a white background and multi coloured seed heads on, the third paper is an oval with a lime green pattern on, and for my down strip on the left Ive used a left over piece of the same card thats been run through my cuttlebug and one of the flower embossing folders.
Across the middle I have wrapped a piece of lace with a strip of seam binding at the top, then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive created a flower spray in the top left hand corner with five different sizes of roses, then stuck it to the card with some silicone glue and punched out fern leaves.
Ive just discovered it should have been pink and girlie for the Mo Challenge, but I hope they will forgive me for this booboo.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

This is a wonderful card, very pretty! Unfortunately it does not use a stamp that SCACD carries and therefore it does not qualify for SCACD Friends With Heart.
Wonderful card though!
