Best friends forever using my new dies

Evening again.
For all those in the UK I hope you have had an enjoyable Bank Holiday.
We had some amazing weather here the last few days and I think this has got to be the first May Day Bnk holiday in a few years that it hasn't poured with rain.
The Hubster took me to Hobbycraft on Saturday and spoilt me.
I have some spanky new dies by Marianne Designs and LOVE them.
I am even more in love with my cuttlebug now. Not sure how I lived without it LOL
For this card the Marianne Designs dies I have used are...
Floral 3 LR0107
Ribbon Flower 3 - LR0110
Corners 1 LR0143
Ribbon 2 LR0102
and last but not least
Double Frame LR0141 ( Love this one most at the moment )
I edged the frame and card blank with a whispers pink Ink pad.
I added some glitter glue to the corners and a gem to each.
Paper is a freebie from this month Quick cards magazine
Threaded some pink ribbon through the Ribbon 2 die and then used sticky pads to assemble it.
The stamps I have used are Penny black - Strolling, The fairy mouse is from Hot diggity dog and the sentiment from Apple Of my eye by Jayne Nestorenko.
I have also added some faux stitching around the stamps.
Thank you for looking.
I am entering this into the following...
