One Card three Challenge

Good Afternoon Ladies, Ive at last got around to making a challenge card to cover several challenges and they are as follows Penny Black at Allsorts "Welcome Spring", Penny Black Saturdays "Pearls and Lace" and Sir Stampalots "Spring is in the Air" and I love this cute image of a hedgie in his flowerpot looking up at the bee buzzing around his flower. Ive stamped the image onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, after which I used my Nestabilitie Die Label No.17 to cut him out and then used the same die to draw around and create a mount for it. The sentiment is one of the free TLC images and Ive printed this onto white card and mount this also onto a piece of the same couloured card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green pearlescent card, and the first paper Ive used is from Donna of Bearlymine Designs "Spring Flight" papers a yellow background with bees and flowers on of various colours, pinks, yellow, and white, the second paper is a yellow based one with little yellow hearts on, the third is a piece of the same green card that had the edge punched with a lace punch and the same has been done with the fourth piece of paper which is another yellow based paper with flowers of blue and pink on, again Ive used the border punch down the edge. I then wrapped a piece of lace with some seam binding ribbon threaded through the holes and have attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned to the left hand side and the sentiment was put at the bottom on the right, I have stuck several white pearls down the edge of this side at the top, and then popped a white flower on the lace also at the top.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hi Shirley.
Love the image. Very cute. Excellent card as always. I wish I could colour images as well as you can. I'm not really much of an artist myself.
