A Card for Several Magnolia Challenges

Good Afternoon All, I meant to get this posted this lunch time but went swimming and Im trying to recover from that, anyway this card today is to cover several Magnolia Challenges, one is "Anything Goes optional Faux Stitching", a "Sketch", "Cat or Dog" and the last wants a "Bookmark" just hope this cover all of them.
I have used this sweet Tilda holding her cat and then one of the single cat stamps that Ive used twice once of the topper and once on the bookmark. Ive coloured them all with my Copic and Tria pens then cut the bookmark out with one of the Go-Kreate Tag dies, and the actual main image I cut out with my rotatrim and then gone around the edges of both with a black pen to create the faux stitching.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue pearlescent card, Ive also used this for the mount of the image and of the tag. On top of this I have stuck my one and only paper and its one from the Kay Millers "My Pretty Kitty" download didi papers, it has lots of cats on a blue background. I then wrapped a piece of lace around the middle with a white ribbon that has cats and butterflies on plus a few flowers along the top of the lace.
The mounted image was mounted towards the right as the sketch shows and then tucked my tag behind it, it has a sentiment on as well thats another of the Magnolia stamps. The final flourish is the two cat buttons stuck at the bottom on the left hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
