A Card for Magnolia Challenges

Good Afternoon All, well the sun is out and theres a lovely breeze here in Gloucestershire, mind you its still hot and our dog is feeling it just as much. Anyway todays card has been made for this weeks Magnolia "In the Country" Challenge and any other one I can find. Ive used this sweet Tilda image carrying a bunch of flowers, not sure what they are meant to be, probably hellibores but I wouldnt depend on that. Ive coloured it with my copics then cut it out with my square Nestabilitie Die, then used with some lilac card a Heart Square from Spellbinders. The sentiment is one from my stash and has also been mounted on some lilac card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card, but Ive also cut a 8" square then used the larger Martha Stewart Border and Corner punches to create a mount for the smaller one, the papers I have used are from Nitwits "Oh the Possibilities" digi paper set. Its all shades of pink and lilac and Ive used several papers, the main one under the mount is one with lilac punches on and the rest I used on the rolled flower in the top left hand corner.
Ive used a large piece of Cobweb ribbon around the card, then on top I have placed a lavender satin ribbon which was attached to the back of the first mount, I then cut a Cheery Lynn doily and tucked it under the ribbon in the bottom left hand corner. The mounted image was then positioned to the right and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. Ive also cut a flower with a Memory Box die and this was stuck in the bottom left hand corner. To finish of Ive used several of the left over papers to create the rolled flower in the top left corner and this was stuck to the card with some punched out leaves on some silicone glue.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
