hAnglar & stAnglar - Girl Sitting

Backing papers are from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Vintage Shabby paperstack.
Image is a hAnglar & stAnglar stamp which I recently purchased and has been coloured with promarkers.
The Nestabilities used, which the image is sitting on, is the scalloped and plain circle die. The die which I have edged with Chipped Sapphire Tim Holtz distressing ink and Star Dust Stickles is a Marianne Design.
I have used a Martha Stewart border punch to create the fancy edge at the bottom of the card.
Sentiment has been stamped using the Chipped Sapphire distressing ink and is from Pink Gem Design.
The white roses (although this photograph has made them look a little yellow) are from Wild Orchid crafts and the blue flowers are what I created using a number of single blooms.
The lace, corner embellishment and diamond gems are from my stash.
The challenges I am entering this card into are:

hAnglar stAnglar - Girl holding rose


I have managed to make a card, the first since before Christmas and now I know the reason why it has taken me so long. I cleared all my crafting stash away from the Lounge to the bedroom for the festive season and could not bear to fetch it all back down again. I decided what I would need for the card and took it downstairs. It has taken me two nights to make it as I was up and down stairs like a yo-yo for bits and pieces. I will never make another card under these circumstances again, so I need to sort something out.

Do I craft in the Lounge or do I craft upstairs??

I have also decorated the inside of the card ...........

The image is from hAnglar and stAnglar which I adore, she has been coloured using promarkers. The backing papers are Botanical range from Prima and the circle diecut is a Marianne Design. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts which have been touched up with a glimmer mist spray and brushed with Walnut Stain Tim Holtz distressing ink. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket. The seam binding ribbon, corner silver embellishment and pearls are from my stash.

I have made this card for the following challenges:
