Card for Lili of the Valley Challenge - "Aqua, White and Glitter"

Good Morning Everyone, though to be honest its not to nice here in Gloucestershire its pouring of rain, and I got soaked taking the pup out for the loo, never mind its warm and dry indoors, and todays card has been created for this weeks Lili of the Valleys "Aqua, White and Glitter" Challenge, and Ive chosen to use this sweet image of these two cuties and stamped it onto white card then used my copics to colour it. Afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.1 to cut it out and then used the die again to draw around to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one of Janet's Pink Gem stamps and Ive treated it in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of aqua pearlescent card and one of three papers from the Nitwits "Still Joyful Hearts" Digi paper downloads, this first paper is a pretty holly pattern and on top is a faded stripe pattern and the last is a spotted one. Across the middle I have wrapped a lace strip and 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 hand side, to finish of I have created a flower spray in the top left hand corner with several sized roses on top of a bed of rose and fern leaf punched out pieces.
This card is to entered in the following Challenges:-
