A Card for Satuarated Canary Challenge "Reds, Pink and White"

Good Afternoon Everybody, well Ive just finished doing a pile of ironing, not my most favourite job but one none the less has to be done. Im so lucky with my dear hubby Ian he helps around the house now hes retired we have jobs we both do and the ironing is not one he can do, or at least he says he carnt. Hes gone of this afternoon to visit his mum who will be 92 next month, hes been going daily for just over a week now as she had a slight stroke and its left her paralysed down the left side, shes having great difficulties eating and swallowing and at one time she just refused to drink anything, as she has dementia its not easy to persuade her to do anything she doesnt want to, but the doctor threatened her with going into hospital and by a miracle she started drinking again. Mind you I wouldnt want to be the care assistants in the home shes in as she more likely to bite you if youve got your hand anywhere near her.
Now back to my card, its the freebie that Krista so kindly gave out last week and I think shes gorgeous and as the Challenge theme is Red, Pink and White, I hope this qualifies as being that, Ive coloured her with my copic and tria pens then used Nestabilitie Die No.17 to cut her out then used the die itself to draw around to create the mount for it. The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, and Ive used two papers from the Bo Bunny "Crush" Collection, the first is a black background with branches and birds on and the second is a white background with the same birds on but with the added birdcages as well, I cut this one into a 5" square and used a bird border and corner punch on it.
The sentiment is one of the CC ones and this has been cut out and mounted on a label thats been attached to the card with red brads, and the bird cage that I was sent from my lovely friend Tracy of Dies to Die for, I must find out whos it is as I rather like it.
The final thing is the red rose spray in the top left hand corner which I have attached to the card with some silicone glue on top of some punched out rose leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
