Pink Gem Challenge - Burgandy, Pink and Green

Good Morning Girls, hope you havent got as busy day as I have, weve got the washing machine engineer due at anytime to have a look at my machine, and then weve got a parcel due by UPS so I suppose it means we are pretty house tied till both have been and gone, oh well never mind, it looks as though hubby will have to go swimming on his own. Anyway todays card has been created for the Pink Gem 4th Challenge, Burgandy Pink and Green, quite a combination dont you think, anyway I hope that Janet and team will accept my interpretation of that.
Ive used this cute image of Janets and coloured her with my copic pens, then used the oval nestabilitie die to cut her out, Ive also used the scalloped one for the mount and this has been done with red card. The sentiment is also one of Janets stamps and I felt it went well with the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card, and one of two papers, this first one is a freebie I got from one of the craft magazines it came in a pad of various red and pink papers. The second strip is a piece of the Henbury Lane papers that I had left and I used my MS border punch, on top of this have put two ribbons and attached them to the back.
The mounted image was stuck on to the left hand side and my sentiment to the botton on the right. To finish of Ive created two flowers from some left over paper and the Nellie Sneden flower punches and a pearl brad was pushed through the centers after which they were then stuck on a bed of fern punched out leaves.
