A Card for Several Magnolia Challenges

Good Afternoon Everyone well I dont know if its cold where you are but its bitter here in Gloucestershire and I gather its the same everywhere it seems that winter hasnt totally left us that mild spell we had was to lull us into a sense of security, oh I do hope it wont stay long as Im really fed up with it and we will have to put the heating on again. Well lets hope my card cheers you up and Im going to enter it for several Magnolia Challenges Just Magnolia's "Friends", Magnolia Stamp Lovers "Tilda with Posies", Magnolia Mania "Favourite Colours" and Magnolia Down Under "Sketch" and Im hoping that this card will meet all those rules. It used this sweet image of Tilda with a posy of hearts and stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then used Nestabilitie Die No.18 to cut it and then used the die to create the mount by drawing around it then cutting out by hand. The sentiment is one of my stash and mounted it onto a piece of the same blue card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount is blue pearlescent card with one of three papers from the Nitwits "Hoppy Hearts" digi downloads the first paper is a white background with patchwork design flowers on, on top is a circle of blue pattern paper, then across the card Ive used a blue spot paper and along the two edges it has been punched with a border punch from Martha Stewart then on top I have put another strip of the same pearlescent card thats been passed through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
To finish of Ive created a flower spray with three roses in two different colours and some punched out leaves has been arranged around the image at the top on the right hand side. And the last thing is the five pearl gems up in the top left hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
