A Card for Dawn

Good Morning Ladies, todays card is for a very special friend of mine Dawn, in fact its one of her own digi images that Ive used to create this card. Dawn has been selling her own craft Cds on Ebay for many years and thats how I met her and we have been friends ever since. I suggested to her about a month ago it might be the next step for her to start looking into creating Digi images and this is her first attempt, now I know there are a few problems and Im sure with time Dawn will get a better feel of the way it works, as Ive found that the lines are just a little faded in places when I printed this and a couple of others but I did want her to see the results of the first card, I do so hope she gets pleasure of actually seeing her digi stamp in card form.
These digi's are of little girls in bubbles, and Ive printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens. As lilac is my favourite colour this is what Ive used for this card, I cut her out with a circle die, and used a larger one for the mount. The sentiment is one of the Stampin Up swerve stamps, and I felt we could get away with using it for this card.
Ive created a 6"x 6" white card and three papers from the Kay Millers digi downloads, the first paper a very pretty flower papers, the second is a pinky/mauve plaid paper and the third a stripe paper. Around the middle Ive wrapped a lilac satin ribbon around the middle, and then positioned my mount in the middle and my sentiment at the bottom on the left hand side. To finish of Ive created a flower spray of three roses, pearl sprays and punched out fern leaves these were attached to the card with silicone glue at the top on the left hand side.
