A Card for Just Magnolia's Sketch Challenge

Good Morning All, its been awhile since I used any of my Tilda Stamps and I thought for a change I would give them an airing, this is one of the new ones and she has a cuddly blanket and sucking her thumb, this so reminds me of my middle daughter Sarah as even at 45 she still has a crafty suck of her thumb when shes stressed, not really a good model for her 4 children but I suppose with teenagers its enough to make you want to stuck your thumb, Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a square Nestabilitie die to cut her out, the image was then mounted on a heart square from Spellbinders. The sentiment is yet another of my stash ones and has been mounted on the same pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and Ive used 3 papers from First Editions "Dreamcatcher" paper pad, the first a cream background with pink butterflies on, for my second I have used a deep purple piece that has lots of flowers and more butterflies on it, and the third is another cream background with a pink chain pattern on.
I then positioned my image in the centre towards the top with the sentiment below on the left. To finish of I have used some of the left over paper to cut out a Royal Rose die cut from Die-namics and rolled it and then stuck it on some punched out pink leaves (left over paper) and put it in the top left hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
