Moving Along with the Times # 57 and Wild Orchid #2

Hi girls. How are things with you? I hope you are enjoying better weather than we are here. You could be forgiven for forgetting that this is the holiday season because there is not much good weather about. I saw an advert on the telly for a super deal on sun tan lotions - now there is a laugh.
I made this card to enter two challenges. Moving Along with the Times gave us a marvellous sketch and inspirational photograph provided by my blogging pal Lisa Jane at Mess2Magic. I included some lace ribbon so that I could also enter it into the current Wild Orchid challenge where the theme is "Lovely Lace".
I used Magnolia's "Tilda with Balloons" and coloured her using my Polychromos Pencils and Copics. The design paper is Papermania's Capsule Collection. I used Bazzil Bling as a mount. The flowers are from Wild Orchid. The doilies, the lace ribbon, the ribbon for the bow and the pearls are all from my stash.
I really hope you like this card and might be able to find a minute to leave a comment to let me know what you think. Your opinion matters to me because your views help me to improve my cards.
Thank you for calling in to visit and in what ever you do today I hope you are kept safe and enjoy yourself.
Hugs,
