A Card for Sugary Sunday and the Sugar Bowl Challenges

Good Evening my fellow Crafters, I dont know about you but the time whizzes by and before you know it another week has flown by, Ive been trying to make up this card for about a week, but I had to get on and make the samples for Sarahs new CD so it go put aside and I eventually got around to finishing it of yesterday.
This is one of the Funky Kits stamps and I have stamped her onto white card then cut it out and mounted it onto a piece of lavender card. And the sentiment is one from my stash and this was also mounted onto another piece of the same coloured card as the image. The actual theme for both these Challenges is a card for your Mum or special friend  and buttons and bows, as I lost my mum 4 years ago I decided to create it for a dear friend instead.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the first mount is lavender card again and the papers are from the Lili of the Valley Lavender paper pad, and I have used three papers from it, the first of flowers and the second is a tartan pattern and the third is larger flower on it.
The mounted image was then placed in the center and the sentiment down the bottom on the left, to finish of I have placed three buttons down the card on the right and on top I have put a tape measure bow.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
