Card for Lili of the Valley Challenge - "Missing You"

Good Morning Everyone, well I hope that you are all looking forward to the weekend, today is my 11th Wedding Anniversary and of course the 9/11 anniversary as well so Im sure a lot of you are not particularly having a happy one so I send you my love and thoughts. Well the day started reasonably well until our pup managed to find the card hubby had put on my bed and guess what she did a good job of ripping it up so it looks a bit battered to say the least, but never mind you could say shes adding her signature like a child would when asked to add theirs.
Todays card has been created for this weeks Lili of the Valleys "Missing You" Challenge, and Ive used this sweet image and coloured it with my copic and tria pens then used the large Rectangle Nestabilitie Die to cut it out, I then cut a mount for it with the scalloped edged one and the sentiment has been treated in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card with one of three papers from the "Echo Park" Country Drive papers, the first one is blue design with yellow flowers on, and the second and third have been cut in strips and Ive used two different Martha Stewart border punches on them, Ive even used it on the blue card strip as well. I then wrapped a piece of white satin ribbon and then on top a sparkly blue ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then used the heart Cherry Lynn doily and cut it out of blue card then popped it just behind the ribbons, on top of this I then mounted my image with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive created two flowers from some of the left over papers, these were stuck to the card in the top left hand corner with some silicone glue on top of punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
