Challenge #227 - A Card for the Girls or Ladies - Pink Gem Challenges

Good Morning Gemsters this fortnights theme is all about creating a card for

Girls or Ladies

Im sure like me you are no doubt always creating cards for these in your family and friends and as usual we are being sponsored by Janet Roberts who
not only owns the website Pink Gem Designs but is also the designer and creator of our gorgeous images, so do go and visit her website and see for yourself what stunning and usable images, papers there are to buy.
For my own card I used this sweetheart


I decided this was a ideal image for one of my granddaughters as they are now well into their teens or at least the older ones are, this is titled "Emma in Torn Jeans" and you will find her here.
I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her afterwards I used my rectangle die to cut her out and then used a fancy one for the mount out of pink card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is a pink card and the papers I have used is from "Micro Dots" and you will find it here. I printed three of the papers in pink, yellow and blue, I used a punch along each of the edges and placed them onto the mount, then used a ribbon around the whole card on the left hand side and attached it to the back.
I then placed my mounted image towards the top left and stamped a sentiment and mounted this also on a smaller fancy diecut and placed it in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used some nuvo drops down the right hand side.
Now that youv'e seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Pink Gem Designs Challenge Blogspot and you can see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and I hope that you will take part in our  "A Card for Girls/Ladies" Challenge.
