My favourite Colours

Good Morning Crafters, well for a change I have created a card with my most favourite colours, like my mum and my daughter we all love purple/lilac/mauve and the image I have used is from Aurora Wings and I printed her onto white card and I have used my colic pens to colour her then used the large Nestabilitie Oval die to cut her out, I then used a fancy one for the mount out of purple card.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first mount of the same purple card and the backing papers from Sweetshoppe designs and this one is called "Lavender fields" which I thought was just ideal for this image and I have used three of the paper designs and mounted them as shown, on top I have used some of the purple spiders web and then across the bottom I have used a strip of lavender organza ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image towards the right and then arranged two roses and two sprays in opposite corners around the mounted image. The final flourish are the lavender purples again put in the opposite corners.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
