A Card for the Just Magnolia Challenge

Good Morning All, I did promise you a card today and Ive even got three days running DT cards starting tomorrow so I will have lots for you to see. Todays card has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge (and of course any other ones I can find) anyway Ive used butterfly Tilda and this weeks challenge is Paper Piecing. I stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens then used one of Donna's of Bearlymine Designs papers Ive actually made it smaller for this image and used the normal size for the backing paper. I also stamped it onto white paper for the underskirt to so colouring the image I then went about cutting and layering up the bits to create my image, I then used Nestabilitie Die 18 to cut her out I also then drew around the die to create the faux mount for her. The sentiment is another of the Magnolia ones thats then been mounted on a Spellbinders ribbon banner.
The base care is a 6"x 6" white card with the first mount of pink pearlescent card and the paper from Donna these ones are called "Just Roses" and pretty pattern of roses and hearts on a yellow pink background. I then ran a piece of the same pearlescent card through my cuttlebug with the Crafts Too Blossom Folder, and then attached some lace behind it down the edges this was then positioned towards the left hand side of my card.
I then stuck my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have created a flower spray in the top left hand corner with five different sized roses and some punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
