A Card for several Magnolia Challenges

Good Morning Crafters, I hope that the weather is nice where you are, the sun is out here and the temperature is going up at long last keep your fingers crossed it lasts for another month as I have two of my grandsons coming for a week then I have my eldest grandsons wedding on the 18th August so Im hoping it lasts till after that. Anyway back to todays card and I have created this Magnolia one for a change, I dont seem to use my magnolia's much these days but I do love this little mite in her tutu, and have created a birthday card with it for one of my granddaughers.
Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, then used a Cheery Lynn Oval die to cut her out, and for my mount I have used the Swedish Flower Oval die for the mount. The sentiment is one of the Magnolia ones as well.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pale lilac card, and Ive used just one paper is from Prima's Meadow Lark paper pad, a very pretty flower background on a pink and lilac paper, then on top I have used a heart doily and have distressed it with one of my Pan Pastels then positioned my mounted image towards the right, with the sentiment at the bottom on the left.
To finish of I have used five different sized roses in a floral spray and stuck them to the top left hand corner with some silicone glue and punched out rose leaves.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
