Cuddly Buddly's Challenge 17 - "Best Friends"

Good Morning Everyone, I know Ive been awol this last week but Ive been rather busy with my DT work and trying to arrange something special for December so please forgive me if Im not around so frequently at times its because I just carnt manage to make time to post. Anyway getting back to today its the Seventeenth Challenge for Cuddly Buddly and this week the theme is "Best Friends" and its my turn to use Barbara Williams "Bits of Ivory" images and papers you will find them in here in  "Cuddly Buddley's Webshop", Kim has some really gorgeous images and fabulous papers and you will fall in love them when you go to browse, so be warned have your credit card at the ready. Anyway heres my card for this weeks Challenge.
The image I have used is titled "A Good Book" and you will find it here, this has been printed onto white card then coloured with my copic and tria pens, I then cut it out with Nestabilities Labels 23 and to create the mount I used the same die to draw around and cut out with scissors, the sentiment is also from "Bits of Ivory" and this one is from the "Garden Sentiments" and you will find it here, this was cut out with the circle die and mounted in the same way as the image onto blue card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount I have used blue card and one of  three papers from the "Garden Vignettes"  you will find them here, a very pretty blue background with white butterflies on, on top of this is a 5" square with a diamond pattern on in multi colours has been punched with one of my Martha Stewart border and corner punch sets, and for my last mount I have used a white background with green stripes with leaves and yellow daisies on this has been munted on some green card and laid down the card on the left hand side. I then wrapped a multi coloured satin ribbon on top of some pretty lace across the centre and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of I have used three roses in two colours and some little multi coloured sprays in the corner at the top on the left hand side, this was attached to the card with silicone glue on top of some punched out rose and fern leaves. And the last little flourish is the pearls down the edge at the top and bottom.
Now that youve seen my card do please go and visit Cuddly Buddley's Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented team have for your inspiration and hopefully it will get you to take part in this weeks challenge "Best Friends".
