A Card for the Lili of the Valley - "Pink and Blue" Challenge

Before I start I want to let you know that my Design Team Leader Donna of Bearlymine Designs has a Midsummer Sale on at the moment so do please pop across and see for yourself what wonderful digi design sets she has.
Now again I must apologise for not posting very much over the last week, its mainly because we have the new pup but also because Im trying to get ready for my grandsons who are due to arrive on the 23rd for a week and I know Im not going to be able to do much while they are here as they take over my craft room and I have to move out. My DT cards will be scheduled for the right date for them to appear so there will be cards appearing on certain days. Anyway to start again Good Morning Everyone, hope the weather with you is a little brighter than it is with me today, its suddenly gone very cloudy and hubby has gone to take his car in for its first service so will be away for a few hours and Im in sole charge of Madam Missy, shes a right little madam believe me like all pups into everything and chewing anything she can get her sharp little needle teeth into, this week she demolised part of the door seal on the back door, I just hope we dont get a puddle indoors when it rains or we will be in trouble.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Lili of the Valley "Pink and Blue" Challenge, and Ive used this sweet little girl for my image.
She was one of the freebies I got from a craft magazine and Ive coloured her with my copic pens then used the Nestabilitie Labels 15 to cut her out, then used the die to draw around to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one from my stash and I believe its one of the C&C stamps, Ive mounted this onto a piece of the left over pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of pink and blue patterned paper from another freebie pack Pink Peddicoat that I got from Quick Cards, on top of this is a pink spot paper thats been cut into a 5" square and one of my Martha Stewart border and corner lace punches have been used (not that you can see it to well) then on top of this is a third mount this time its a pretty rose pattern on a white background. I then stuck a blue heart that I punched out with the Cherry Lynn die, and positioned my mounted image on top. The sentiment was then stuck at the bottom on the right hand side.
The last thing is the spray of five roses in the top left hand corner, Ive used three pink ones and two blue and white ones, these were stuck with some punched out rose leaves on top of silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
