A real Sassy Lady

Good Morning Ladies or should I say Afternoon, its a bit late for morning, I have no doubt you are all experiencing the rain, its been heavy showers here in Gloucestershire, and my hubby says theres more on the way. Anyway todays card has been made from some fabulous goodies that I received from Enfys, I won them in her blogcandy and have only just got around to mounting them onto card. Im hoping she will approve of what Ive done with this particular sassy lady, Ive actually created a card for a friend with it.
The card is my now famous 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of orange card and one of three papers from the Nitwit collection of papers this one is called "Buds n' Blossoms" and this first paper is a all over friendship sentiment, on top of this is a 5"x 5" square of a flower pattern not that it shows to well, but Ive used one of the arch border and corned punch on it and set it in a diamond shape. On top of this are two strips with a stripped pattern on and then Ive stuck a ribbon across this and attached it to the back of the first layer.
The mount is a Nestabilitie Labels No.10 which I have punched out of the same orange card and stuck it in the centre and off set my sassy lady. The sentiment is a Stampin Up one thats been positioned at the bottom on the right.
Ive then created a spray of roses at the top on the left with punched out fern and rose leaves, and the final flourish is the three gems at the top and bottom of opposite corners.

Hi Shirley

Please send some of your rain our way, we get drops and that's it. The paddocks are absultely parched and we are feeding hay, unheard of in July.

On to your lovely card and something really different, a real fun girl image.
