A Card for Saturated Canary "Anything Goes" Challenge

Good Afternoon Everyone, the sun is out and Ive just sent hubby out to sweep up all the leaves that have tumbled from the trees in all that wind last night, hes not happy but it does need doing as weve got the green wheelie bin men due tomorrow. Before I show you my card for Saturated Canary I want to share with you a couple of photos of my hubbys new Grandson who arrived last Sunday evening, his name is Jacen and he weighted in at 8lbs 10ozs a real whopper, of course hubby is as proud as punch and carnt wait to go to visit and see him but unfortunately weve got a lot on over the next couple of weekends that its going to have to wait until 18th which will mean that he will probably have grown a bit, but never mind.

On the top is Ian's daughter Sammie with young Jacen and below hes with his dad Matt, they already have a 2 year old daugher Seraphie and Im sure shes thrilled with her new baby brother.
Anyway back todays card here it is:-
Ive used one of the new Sassy Girls stamps and coloured her with my copics and tria pens, afterwards Ive used the Nestabilitie Labels No.1 die to cut it out then used the die to create the mount for it, the sentiment is one I got free from one of the craft magazines and has been mounted on the same pink card I used for the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and for my papers Ive used the Nitwits "Hey Cupcake" digi downloads, this first paper is a pretty pink background with several different coloured flowers on it, the second is a strip thats been mounted down the card and on this is a blue background with red, green and yellow hearts on it, for the third paper Ive used a pink and white stripe one and this has been stuck across the card and a blue grosgrain ribbon has been wrapped down and around the card and then stuck to the back of the first mount.
Ive then stuck my mounted image to the left of my card and the sentiment at the bottom on the right, to finish Ive used two of the left over bits of paper to create a rolled flower and this was then stuck to the card at the top on the right with some silicone glue on top of some punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges.
