A Card for a Few Challenges

Good Evening All, Im so sorry for being so lapse in posting a card that I thought I really ought to make an extra effort and here is the result, actually its one of two images that I coloured yesterday for a DT card and I had this left and thought it would make a lovely card for a few Challenges, so here we go. This is a image from Bildmalarna isnt she sweet, Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour her, I then used the Nestabilitie Die No.17 to cut her out then used it again for the mount by drawing around the die and cutting it out by hand from some mauve card. The sentiment is one from my stash and have done the same thing with this as it I did the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of mauve card and one of three papers from the Kay Miller Downloads this one is called "Wings" and this first paper is a mauve background with lots of butterflies and flowers on it, the second is a stripped one that Ive cut into a 5"square then used the Butterfly Border and Corner punches on it, this was then layered at angle on top of the first paper, the third one is a strip with a spotted pattern on a green background and this was stuck down the card.
On top of this is a piece of lace that Ive had threaded a mauve seam binding through and then attached it to the back of the first mount, I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, I then tied a triple bow and stuck it on top of the lace on the left hand side.
The next thing I did was stuck a spray of five roses in the top left hand corner on top of some punched out rose leaves, and the last thing is the large butterfly in the top right hand corner, and then with some stickles I ran it along the edges of the roses and the middle of the butterfly.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

No I really don't think you could let your sweet pup sit on your crafting table Shirley lol! When I had puppies they would chew and destroy anything they could get their paws on lol!
Take care and have a great weekend!
