One Card two Challenges

Im afraid Ive cheated again this week and made one card to cover two challenges, Just Magnolia's "Buttons" and Stampin for the Weekend's song title "Seasons in the Sun" by Terry Jacks. This is the last Challenge card I will be making for a couple of weeks as most of you know I have two of my grandsons coming to stay for a week's holiday, and we have to travel up to Norfolk to collect them next Friday. And as they will be sleeping in my craft room I have to hide or remove all things that might hurt them, and to be honest I wouldnt like them to damage some of my more expensive things. I do have a lot of lovely things for them to play with Im not that selfish, but I suspect we are all a bit protective of our craft things.

Anyway Ive have created a card with two of the new Magnolia Summer Club stamps, Ive stamped Tilda onto white card, then masked her to stamp the tyre afterwards, then I coloured her with my copic pens. I then used one of the larger Spellbinder dies to punch her out after which I have drawn around the edge of the same size die on some orange pearlescent card to create a mount for it sit on, these were then stuck together with some foam tape. The greeting is one of my Just-Right stamps, which I have also punched out with a circle die, and created a mount for it with the Inverted circle and pearlescent card.

The base card is a 8"x 8"size card, then Ive used for the first mount a piece of orange pearlescent card, and one of the patterns from the Bearly Mine Cd designs, and used it again for the second, third and forth layers, but these were punched along the edges with the EK Success Border punch, this one has sandcastles, spades and buckets design on it.

After I stuck them across the base layer, Ive put my greeting at the top on the right hand side to create the illusion of Sunshine, then put my mounted image in the centre. Along the bottom of the card I have stuck several buttons, these are sandels, sunglasses, a bucket and starfish.
I also stuck a further six small flower buttons across the centre either side of a piece of rik rak braid, which had been attached before I stuck my stamped image on. The final thing is the flower, this is one of the Prima Sprite flowers with a crochet flower in the centre and a pearl brad threaded through the middle, before sticking it to the card Ive arranged some punched out leaves in some silicone glue then stuck the flower on top.
