Just Magnolia Challenge - Paper Piercing

Todays card is for the Just Magnolia Challenge, and this week it has to incorporate paper piercing. I have stamped my image onto white card and used a mask to be able to stamp the garden bench behind the main image, then coloured it with my Copic Pens. After which I have cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto a piece of pale mauve pearlescent card and then stitched a zigzag stitch down all the sides with my sewing machine, after which I have layered it onto a piece of pink pearlescent card.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, onto which I have layered up a piece of the same mauve pearlescent card and one of the Bearly Mine Extreme Designs cd patterns, then I have used a further three more designs to create 3 layers of punched edged papers to lay on top of the base layer, over these I have put another piece of the same mauve pearlescent card but have put it through my cuttlebug with the paisley embossing folder first, and wrapped a piece of stark pink rikrak brad around the lot and stuck it to the back.

On top of this I have stuck my stamped coloured image, and I have also stamped a greeting onto white card and layered it up in the same way and stuck this to the right handside of the bottom of the card. I then punched out some flourishes from a piece of left over paper from the layered up ones, and arranged them along the folded edge and across the bottom on the left handside, and popped some pink pearls amoung the swirls.

To finish of I have created two flowers with my Hydrangea petals and two roses, Ive then punched out some leaves and stuck them to the card hung a flower charm from the bottom flower and stuck these also to the card.
