Bearlymine Designs 5th Challenge - "Birthday"

As I said yesterday I just carnt believe that we have actually got to our 5th Challenge for this year, but this time its for the wonderfully stunning Bearlymine Designs Blogspot and we had over 115 wonderful entries this time, well done girls. And the host for this fortnights Challenge is Judith of Bellasbastelecke Blogspot she is a one very talented lady and I do hope you will pop across and see for yourself just how much she is. She has chosen for this fortnights Challenge "Birthdays" and the sponsers for this one are the following four companies and they are:-

Wild Orchid Crafts -  A Selection of Flowers and Lace
Go Kreate - couple of dies  - 3 Sets of Rectangle metal dies worth £13.99each

Wow awesome prizes, I wouldnt mind any of those and would love to be able take part but you know the rules, anyway my choice of image is from the Tickled Pink Stamp Range and her name is Lil Lolita "Willow" all the team got the chance to use one of the range of digi stamps and Im sure you will want to go and look at the results so if you go the Bearlymine Challenge Blogspot you will see what a stunning job the rest of my fellow team members have done. Anyway heres my card for this Challenge:-
Ive printed her onto white card then used a Mega Rectangle Die from Nestabilitie and used a Scalloped one for the mount, the sentiment is one of the Cats Life Stamps and Ive cut it out with a circle die and mounted this also onto a scalloped one to.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with one a first mount of blue card and one of three beautiful papers from Donna's "Peach Dream" digi papers, a very pretty blue background is the first one with roses on, the second paper is a lemon one that I have used in a square with a Martha Stewart all around punch die set and arranged in the middle, and the third mount is strip with a mulit coloured paper and this was positioned down the card on the left. The mounted image was then stuck in towards the left hand side with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of Ive created a flower spray with some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts in the top right hand corner, and these were stuck on with some silicone glue and punched out fern leaves. Now youve seen my card do please pop across to our Challenge Blogspot at Bearlymine and see the rest of the teams stunning work and hopefully it will inspire you yet to take part it this challenge as well.
Before I go Donna has some brand new Digi Paper sets out today, please do pop over to her webshop Bearlymine Designs  and she also has a Spring Sale on at the moment which means you will be able buy all three sets together and get a fabulous saving of £4.50 on the total usual price of them,
