My Second Mimosa Card - Little girl sitting of the Fence

This is another of the beautiful Mimosa stamps that I bought from Nikki, again I dont really know what the stamps title is but to me she looks a little Molly sitting on the garden fence, not that it looks particularly comfortable.

Anyway Ive stamped it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, as the image is a bit to big to use a Nestabilitie die I have cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her onto a piece of dark blue pearlescent card, but before doing so Ive distressed it around the edge with some foam and a pink inkpad. I also stamped out a greeting that I thought went with it and mounted this also onto a piece of the same colour of pearlescent card.

The base card is my usual size of 8"x 8" white card, and onto this I have layered up a piece of pink pearlescent card with again one of the Bearly Mine Extreme Designs (I should say that my printer is still not in a good state it looks as though its going to the boneyard as at the moment the chap is unable to repair it, and so Ive pinched my hubbys printer instead) layered it up and stuck it to the base card. On top of this I have put two further mounts and on one Ive used the dark blue card with a blue design and another piece of Jacqui's beautiful ribbon, this was stuck to the left handside of the card with a another piece of patterned paper but this has been punched along both edges with the Martha Stewart border punch. The other mount layer is a piece of the pink pearlescent card with a pink and blue paper, and it was stuck across the other layer in a angle.

Onto this I have stuck my stamped mounted image, and stuck the greeting to the left handside of the card at the bottom. Ive then created two flowers again with my Hydrangea petals and two smaller roses this time, and before sticking them to my card I have arranged some punched out leaves in some silicone glue, and then hung the charm and stuck the roses to the centre of them. To finish of I have stuck a few buttons appropriate to the scene.
