A Card for LOV Challenge - "Punch It Up"

Good Evening Everyone, if youve been to my No.1 blog you will know that for the next few days I have the house to myself as hubby has gone to visit his daughters, granddaughters and stepson, so Im going to try and catch up with my craft jobs, have to schedule three challenge posts for next week and I didnt think I could get them done if I went away. Anyway tonights card has been created for this weeks Lili of the Valleys "Punch it up" Challenge, and Ive used these sweet two sipping tea together, Ive also used a sentiment from LOV as well. I stamped the image onto white card then used my copics and tria pens to colour it, after which I used the Nestabilitie Die No.15 to cut it out and then drew around the die to create the mount for it, Ive done the same for the sentiment to.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark pink pearlescent card with one of two papers from the Tatty Teddy papers from Do Crafts, the first paper is a cream background with butterflies and flowers on, then on top Ive used a pink paper with white spots on, and Ive used an all around lace punch set by Martha Stewart, then positioned it in the middle of the first paper. I then wrapped a piece of cream lace and a dark pink satin ribbon around the middle and stuck it to the back fo the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image towards the right hand side with the sentiment underneath, I used another piece of the same dark pink card to punch out a leaf swirl from Marianne dies, and then used two more piece of paper from the same Tatty Teddy set to create the flower in the top left hand corner, to finish of I popped a pearl brad through the middle and stuck it down with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
