A Multi-challenge Commision card

Hi folks!
Hope you are all managing to stay cool in the warm weather. My card for today is for a work colleagues wife. I have used one of the new Tilda characters from my stamp club that arrived this morning. I have combined lots of challenges with this one. Cupcake Crafts and A Spoon Full of Sugar want a summer themed card. Both Cute Daisy May and Charisma Cardz are letting their designers choose for themselves this week. Colour Create has Green Aqua and Pink up which has to be one of my favourite combos at the moment so this also qualifies for The Pink Elephant Challenge. Gosh! I nearly forgot the most important challenge...the sketch which is from Just Magnolia!!
I used imaginisce papers; Doodlebug paper trim with a ribbon on top; Nestabilities to cut the pink funky foam scalloped circle and the circle; I die cut more Foam with Cuttlebug corner die and Go Kreate Lingfield Alphabet; the flowers are Prima and the leaves a Woodware punch. I coloured the image with Copic markers and added Tattered Rose distress ink to the circle. I finished off the card with some flower gems and tiny gems on the letters. I also stamped the image again and cut the flower to add it as an extra layer.
Ciao fo now!
