Another Card with a Pink Gem Image

Good Morning Crafters, do you know its been a really hectic few days for me, as I decided to clear out a load of my unmounted stamps that I had been hoarding for at least 8 years, I bought them in 2005 mounted them cut them out and never used most of them, and do you know the buyers went mad it was like the January Sales in Oxford Street, in the end yesterday I was making so many mistakes and one very bad one that I decided to take a break for a few days, and also I think Ive now exhausted my store of the though I do still have a load of wooden mounted ones that I must look through sometime, but not sure if they will go as easily as the unmounted ones.
Anyway Im getting of the subject, this image is one of the gorgeous Pink Gem ones and this is "Chloe with a Balloon" and you will find her here, I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, I cut her out with a circle Nestabilitie die and the Butterfly one for the mount. The sentiment is one of the Papercraft die sets.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppes "Party Poppers" digi paper set, I have used three of the papers and the second I have used a butterfly border punch from Tonic. And to add dimension I have lifted the wings of the Butterflies to make them look as if they are moving.
I have mounted the papers as follows a pink one for the first layer a polka dot one for the second and the third is a purple one, on top I have placed my mounted image and across the top left hand corner I have used a La La Land heart banner and down the right side is the sentiment.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
