A Challenge Card for Crafts and Me

 
 Good Morning Ladies, I hope you are not expecting snow to fall tonight as weve been promised but Im so hoping that theyve got that wrong, anyway I must pop out later while the weather is dry. Todays card has been created for Crafts and Me's challenge "Paper Tearing" and Ive used this sweet image from Bridgit Ashwood, I do think this little fairy is gorgeous.
Ive stamped and coloured her with copic pens, then cut her out with my Oval Nestabilitie dies and created a mount with a scalloped one. The sentiment is one from my stash and at the moment I carnt remember whos it is. The card is a 6"x 6" base card with four papers from Kay Millers "Tropical Punch" digi download set. Ive layered them up across the card and have torn of the two papers and used ink pads along the edges, and wrapped an orange satin ribbon around one end.
The mounted image was positioned in the middle with my sentiment to the left hand side, Ive also used two Marianne diecut corners, a few pearls, and a Prima flower to finish it of.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
