A Card for the Lovely hAnglar Challenge "Dots"

Good Morning all, well the sun is out and the wind has dropped so thats a relief, not sure if its going to last but we are of swimming in about 30 mins so I must pull all the stops out and get a move on. Anyway todays card has been created for Lovely hAnglars "Dots" Challenge, and Ive used this little sweetie for my image, Ive coloured her with my copic and tria pens before using an oval Nestabilitie Die to cut her out, the mount is the Eyelet Oval and Ive used red card for this. The sentiment is one from my stash and this has also been mounted onto red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and then one of three papers from Donna's Bearlymine Designs "Dots" digi download set, the first is a red background with white dots then on top of this I have layered up a further two papers in yellow and beige, both of these has been punched along both edges with a dot border punch from Martha Steward. On top of this is a yet another piece of the red card thats been put through my cuttlebug with a dotty background and then laid across the middle of the two papers.
I then used a needle and thread to draw up an strip of organza ribbon then stuck it down across the middle of the embossed strip with yet another red spotted ribbon wrapped around the middle. I then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I used yet another piece of the red card and cut a swirl out this one was from the Doo Hickeys dies, and to finally finish Ive cut three Marianne Die flowers with some left over papers and rolled them before sticking them to my card on top of some punched out leaves with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
