A Card for Many Challenges

Good Evening All, I hope you all enjoyed the Royal Wedding I know my hubby and I were glued to the screen to watch it, it was brilliant and Catherines dress was gorgeous I love the lace top and the pleats in the skirt were beautiful. Well heres the second card Ive posted today wont be doing any tomorrow as hubby and I are of to Abergevenny for our dinner and a browse around the shops.
I have used this gorgeous image of Tilda and Ive stamped her and coloured her with my copic and Tria pens, then used the oval Nestabilitie die to cut her out and a beaded one for the mount. The sentiment is one of the Magnolia stamps as well, this was cut out with the small labels No.4 and I drew around the die to create the mount for it.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue pearlescent card and one of three papers from the Nitwit Downloads "Promises" paper set, a all over white background with butterflies of several colours, on top is a strip of blue background with white flowers on and Ive used the Butterfly Border punch from Martha Stewart, then on top is the last paper a white background with multi coloured flowers on. I then wrapped a piece of lace around the middle with a strip of blue satin ribbon at the top. I then made a double bow with some seam binding and this was then stuck at the right handside, with a button with yet another bow tied through the holes.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, I then punched out a butterfly and this was stuck at the top on the right, I have laid a strip of gems down the middle of it, and then around the beaded oval to. The final touch is the spray of five roses which have been stuck to the card with silicone glue and punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
