Please don't forget you are allowed to enter 3 projects but one of these must carry one of our images please as its only good manners don't you think.
For my own card I chose this image
 
 
This young lady is titled "Skate Girl" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a rectangle die to cut her out and some blue card and a fancy die for the mount. The sentiment is one that I have stamped from my stash and has also been cut and mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount the same blue card as I used for the mount and the backing paper is from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. On top of this I have placed a doily and a piece of lace across the middle and then stuck to the back of the first mount. On top of this I have place my mounted image in the center towards the top and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.

Ive got to admit this image always makes me smile and my second grandson has several chickens in his garden and no doubt this might happen if his son tries this trick and this card is the one I sent him for his two little ones. 
The image is titled "Easter Prank" and you will find it here,f I printed it onto a piece of white card then coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I used a oval die to cut it out and with a larger one I cut a mount out of blue card, then layered it on top. The sentiment is one from my stash and was treated in the same way as the image, stamped and cut with a oval die and mounted onto another piece of the same blue card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card and the backing paper is also from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. I placed this onto of the first mount and wrapped a ribbon down the middle and attached to the back of the mount.
I then placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner, to finish of I have used a couple Easter button in the bottom left hand corner.
