A Card for Sugary Sundays on Facebook

Good Afternoon Crafters, well I dont know about you but for the last few days weve had fog most of the day, I suppose it might be that we are surrounded with water from the Severn and the Wye, but its getting to be a real pest. Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Challenge over on Sugary Sundays "Anything Goes" and Ive used this sweet image from Funky Kits and stamped it onto white card before colouring it with my copics and tria pens, afterwards I used the large rectangle die to cut it out, and cut a mount out of dark purple card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of the same dark purple card and three papers from the First Edition "Dreamcatcher" paper pad, a very pretty purple background with pink flowers and butterflies on, the second and third mounts are of fern leaves and have been mounted at angles to each other, then I have wrapped a satin and organza ribbon around the card and tied a bow and stuck it to the right of the card.
The mounted image was then positioned towards the left with the sentiment below the ribbon on the right. To finish of I have cut a doily out of tissue paper and folded it in half and on top I have stuck punched out fern leaves and five lilies in shades of pink and lilac.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
