A Card for LOV Challenge - "Sketch"

Good morning Everyone, well its stopped raining even though I dont suppose its going to last its just nice to be able to go outside without getting soaked. Back todays card I created this for the Lili's little Fairies "Sketch" Challenge, and Ive used one of the new stamps for my card, though I do see that I have cut it out on the squiff, daft really but my excuse is I do have new glasses, I hope it doesnt upset your feeling towards it. Ive stamped it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, and the oval Nestabilitie die to cut it out, afterwards I used the lacey edge die for my mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, and then Ive used two of the new beautiful "Rose's Dream" digi papers from Bearlymine, they really are so pretty, I do hope you will go and visit Donna's website to see for yourself. The first paper is a pink background with hellibore roses on, and the second paper is a blue background that has the same flowers on in different colours.
I then wrapped three ribbon stripes around the card in pink and blue and attached them to the back of the first mount, the mounted image was then positioned in the middle and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive used some left over paper to create two rolled roses in the top left hand corner thats been stuck on top of some punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
