Cute Card Thursday Challenge - "Wheely Good Fun"

Todays card has been created for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, "Wheely good Fun!, Ive used one of the Rachelle Ann stamps, shes such a cutey pushing her teddy around in the cart. Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my Karisma colouring pencils, then used one of my Nestabilitie label dies to cut her out, I created a larger one with some salmon coloured pearlescent card and stuck them together with some foam tape.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, and I have layered it up firstly with some of the salmon coloured card and one of the Bearly Mine Extreme Design papers, this one has butterflies on it. The second layer is a lime green pearlescent card with a similar colour patterned paper on which it has swirls, the third and last layer is another piece of the salmon coloured card and this time I have used a small star pattern paper, these were stuck to the base card, and then Ive stamped and punched out a greeting with one of the ribbon label dies, and threaded it onto some pretty ribbon I found in my stash, this was attached to the back of the first layer. The stamped image was them positioned in the centre of the card.

Ive created three flowers from Hydrangea petals and some very pretty crochet flowers I bought from Wild Orchid webshop, I put a pearl brad through the centre and hung a bear charm from the bottom flower, before sticking them to the card I punched out some leaves and stuck them down with some silicone glue, and attached the flower on top.

The finishing touch is the punched out flourishes that Ive stuck down the right handside and put some pearl gems amoung them.
