A Card for two Challenges

Good Afternoon Everyone, Im so sorry Ive been rather lapse this week putting up cards on my blog, Ive got to admit to you that Ive been in rather a lot of pain due to a lower bowel infection, wont go into details but its rather put me of creating though I have been busy in my craft room and I did make two DT cards so Ive not been totally lazy but I have been pushing myself to try and make amends and this is the result a card for at least two Challenges Mo's "A new Beginings" and Cute Card Thursdays "Weather Inspired" and Ive used this image of a little lass "Waiting for Rain" its the first time Ive used this one and I also used it for CCT Challenge which is weather inspired and I hope that this image will cover both challenges. Ive printed her onto white card then used my brand new Tria Pens on it, wont go into details but thats another story to, Ive been waiting three weeks for them to arrive they did yesterday but theres been lots of problems with them like broken fine nibs and three with bullet nibs instead of fine nibs. Oh well they say things never go straight when you want them to dont they.
Well the base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount Ive used a piece of blue pearlescent card with one of three papers from the Nitwits Downloads paper set "Puddle Jumping" this first one is a sky pattern, and on top of this is a white background with raindrops on, and down the edge Ive used a border punch, then on top is the last mount which is another white background with sentiments on. Then around the middle Ive wrapped a blue spot ribbon and attached it at the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with a sentiment that I created on my computer and printed it then mounted in the same way as the image. I should have said I used the new Nestabilitie Labels Die No.17 on this image then drew around it to create the mount. To finish of Ive stuck two boat buttons at the top on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

It is a stunning card Shirley. Your markers was well worth waiting for. I love those myself. They are easier on the hands than the copic markers if you colour for a long time.
Have a good weekend and feel better soon.
Love n hugs
