Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Quotations

My card today has been created for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, Ive used one of my Penny Black stamps and stamped it onto white card and coloured it with my Copic Pens, then cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto a piece of teal coloured pearlescent card. The quotation is a Penny Black one which I have also stamped onto white card and mounted this also onto a piece of the same pearlescent card, but I used one of the my Nestabilitie label dies to cut it out.

The base card is a 8"x 8" card, and onto this I have layered up a piece of pale teal coloured Pearlescent card, and used one of the Bearly Mine Extreme Designs from Donna, then on top I have put a piece of pink pearlescent card, with another of the designs from the same cd. The third layer of card is another piece of the same teal card but it has been put through the cuttlebug with one of the embossing folders, this one is all swirls.

I then stuck these two mounts to my base card, and then wrapped a piece of pink and teal coloured ribbon around the middle of the card and fixed it to the back of the first layer. On top of this I have stuck my mounted image. Then stuck the mounted quotation to the top left side of the card. I punched out some flourishes from the some of the second patterned paper and arranged them in two of the corners, and in between the swirls I have stuck some teal coloured pearls.

To finish of I have created two flowers from my Hydrangea petals, and used pink and teal again in layers with a silver spacer and a pink brad in the centre to hold them together, then with some punched out fern pieces have stuck them to the bottom left hand side of the card.
