A Card for Just Magnolia and Two more Challenges

Good Evening Everyone, what a terrible couple of days weve had, today has been windy and wet, though I must say the sun is out at the moment and wind seems to have dropped lets hope it lasts as Im fed up with next doors back gate banging all the time. Anyway today cards has been created for Just Magnolia's "Sketch", Wild Orchids "Embossing" and Magnolia Stamp Lovers "Dry Embossing" and Ive used this sweet image of Tilda and coloured her with my copic pens and then used the oval Nestabilitie die to cut it out and then used the scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one of the Magnolia ones and has been stamped and mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue pearlescent card and one of two papers from the "Its a Spring Thing" the first paper is a flower one in several colours on top of this is a strip of blue card thats been put through the cuttlebug with an embossing folder, and the last mount is a stripe one then over the card I have wrapped a piece of yellow seam binding and attached to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle of the third mount and the sentiment is stuck below on the right hand side. To finish of I have used three roses of two different sizes and have wrapped them around the mounted image with some punched out rose leaves and silicone glue. The last thing is the three pearlescent gems at the top and bottom of opposite corners.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
