A Card for the Lovely hAnglar and Just Magnolia Challenges

Good Afternoon All, hope that you are enjoying your weekend and are over the terrible day we had yesterday with Blogger, and I did find that all my old posts have been restored so thats a relief. Anyway todays card has been created for two Challenges Lovely hAnglar's "A Receipe 2 Papers, 2 Flowers, 1 Charm" and Just Magnolia's "Make it Lacey" and Ive used this sweet image thats from the Sailor set, and stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her. Then she was cut out with my Nestabilie Die No.17 I then used the same die to draw around to create the mount for her. The sentiment is one of the Cats Life Scrabble stamps and this has been mounted also on a piece of blue pearlescent card thats been cut with my rotatrim.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a piece of blue card for the first mount and one of two papers from the Kay Miller "Ocean Adventure" digi download papers, this one is a blue base with lots of fish on, and then on top is a second mount of a blue paper and thats been stuck to the right hand side of the card. Around the middle I have wrapped a piece of blue lace with a satin ribbon stuck to the top of it and attached at the back of the first mount.
The sentiment was positioned at the bottom on the right and the mounted image to the left hand side. To finish of Ive created two flowers from some of the left over papers with my Die-namics "Upsey Daisy" dies, and Ive popped a pearl brad with a spacer through the centres of both, but on the second one I hung a anchor charm from the brad. These were then stuck to the card on top of some punched out fern leaves on some silicone glue.
This card is being entered in the following Challenges:-
