A Card for the LOV Challenge "Anything Goes"

Good Afternoon Everyone, well its pouring of rain here in Gloucestershire and its not nice at all, at the moment it seems to have eased of thank goodness, but the poor pup has got soaked the last time we took her out and I hope it stays dry for the next time she needs to. Anyway todays card has been created for this weeeks LOV Challenge "Anything Goes" and Ive used this sweet image of all these children out posting cards, they can come and do mine if they like though they do need stamps first.
Anyway Ive coloured my image with my Copic pens then used Nestabilitie Die Labels 17 to cut it out then created the mount by drawing around the die and cut it out by hand out of blue card. The sentiment is yet another of the LOV stamps and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and one beautiful paper from the Maja Vintage Christmas Paper Pack, which my very special adopted daughter bought for me for my recent birthday, thank you sweetheart you know who you are. Ive then used a piece of butter muslin which I have pulled the edges of and laid it with a pleat in the middle down on top then wrapped a piece of binding ribbon around the middle and stuck it to the back of the first mount. I then positioned my mounted image towards the right and the sentiment at the bottom on the left.
I then created a triple bow with more of the same ribbon and stuck to the side of my image, and to finish of Ive used several Martha Stewart Snowflake punches to punch out a snowflake and then used some German Glass Glitter to sparkle it up and then positioned it at the top on the left hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
