A Card for Just Magnolia's "Pink and Purple" Challenge

Good Afternoon All, well Ive actually managed to create a card for this No.2 Blog and I will be entering it into the Just Magnolia "Pink and Purple" challenge and any other one I can find on my travels. I dont know if youve been suffering from the rain today but its certainly been rather heavy first thing this morning but from about 11am its been dry and sunny, but the black clouds are gathering so I suspect they will bring the rotten rain back again soon, it certainly causes trouble trying to get Missy house trained.
Anyway to get back to my card, Ive used this sweet image of Tilda in her Bridesmaid dress, and Ive colured her with my copic and tria pens, then used the Heart from the Xcut new Nestabilitie dies, It was then stuck on a Heartland Die from Cherry Lynn. The sentiment is one from my stash that been mounted on a strip of mauve card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for the first mount Ive used a pink pearlescent card and one of two papers from the Henbury Lane paper set from Papermania, this first paper is a white background with pink scroll on, the second is a mauve spot one thats been cut into a 5" square and Ive used a heart border and corner punch on it, this was then layered on top of the first mount. I then used a piece of lace across the middle and threaded a strip of mauve seam binding ribbon through the holes, was then attached to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then stuck in the middle and a triple bow again made with the seam binding was stuck to the left of it, I also used a mauve cut out heart that was left from the mount and stuck this at the top on the right with a white pearl heart in the middle. The sentiment was stuck at the bottom on the right hand side.
To finish of Ive created a spray of mauve and pink roses in different sizes on top of some punched out leaves with some silicone glue in the top left hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
