A Card using one of the beautiful Aurora Wings Images

Good Afternoon All, well guess what is dry and cloudy so I suppose it wont be long before it starting raining yet again, I dont know about you but Im really cheesed of with it all, though my daffs are starting to bud up so maybe we will get Spring a little earlier than last year keep your fingers crossed we might be lucky.
Yesterday at last my dear grandson Joe eventually got his operation to have his pins removed from his arm, you might remember he had a terrible accident last July and it was touch and go as to whether they would save his arm but hes been really lucky and its doing well though Joe wasnt to happy with the skin craft as it was rather ugly and looked liked raw meat. They have supposed to have tidied it up for him and Im sure anything will be better than what it was and might give Joe the confidence to leave of the bandage he had kept on it since it healed. Here he is just after his op.
Hes such a commando type boy so I suppose it wont be long before hes upto climbing yet again and I just hope hes more careful about falling out of trees, or at least I sincerely hope so. Anyway todays card has been created using the gorgeous Aurora Wings Images and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used a oval die to cut it out and a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of Aquarmine blue card and the papers are from the Sweetshoppe Designs Digi Paper Set,  "A Year of Firsts" and I have used two papers and layered them up, then used Tattered Lace Chantilly Lace Heart Corners in two opposite ones, and then placed the mounted image in the center, then to finish of I have placed three roses in the bottom left hand corner and in the top right hand corner I have placed 5 pearls down the two sides.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
