A Card for the LOV Challenge "A Card for Someone Special"

Im not sure if the cards not straight or Ive not put the topper on straight, anyway hope you still like the end result, it might just be my camera angle, lets hope its that. Anyway todays card has been created for the Lili of the Valleys "A Card for Someone Special" and Ive still got a few to make for family members so I think this card will fall into that catagory, Ive used this sweet little people singing with the dog howling, and coloured it with my copic and tria pens, then cut it out with my rotatrim, the mount has been cut out with the Fleur de Lis Rectangle from Spellbinders, Ive then mounted them up, the Sentiment is one that I got free from Polka Doodles and felt it was a lovely one to go with the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and one of the Memory Box "Mistletoe" paper set, a very pretty white/cream background with holly leaves and berries on, Ive only used the one paper and on top I have laid two stripes of die cut that I created with the Cherry Lynn Holly Lace die, and then mounted  my image to the right and the sentiment at the bottom on the left. To finish of Ive stuck some pearls in random places to look like holly berries.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
