A Card for the Aurora Wings "No Lines Challenge"

Good Morning fellow Crafters, it looks like another beautiful day again the sun is out and its still quite warm, our dog loves the early morning sunshine and here she is sitting by the back gate taking in the rays.
Mind you she always runs in to welcome me when I come down in the morning then runs outside yet again to enjoy it.
Todays card has been created with such a lot of difficulty I tried twice with the Fushia Sprite but the dark colours were difficult to lay without the lines they kept going over the edge and looked awful so in the bin they went, and I thought I would try something a little lighter and this "Dandelion" Sprite is the result.
I took her into My Craft Studio and faded out the lines printed it and coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.34 to cut it out and a Fancy one for the mount from the same Die shape our of green card.
The card is a 6.50"x 6.50" and the first mount is green card, the paper I created myself with Phil Martins "Dandelion Whispers" background stamp by using clear inkpad and details embossing powder and used the heat gun to set it, afterwards I used yellow mica powder and rubbed it all over the embossed background and rubbed of the excess.
I then stuck it to the base mount and cut a 5" square green card and with a Dandelion Embossing Folder from Crafters Companion Embossalicious range and ran it through my ebosser. I then placed this onto of the first layer and wrapped a piece of green net ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount. I then placed my mounted image in the center of the middle mount.
To finish of I diecut three Dandelions with the Tattered Lace Die and placed them around the mounted image in the center.
