Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Lazy Days

Todays card has been created for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, Lazy Days. I was lucky to receive from Lyn some lovely Penny Black images and this one I felt was ideal for this Challenge, its of a Hedgie in his hammock and I love it. Ive coloured it with my copic pens then cut it out with my rotatrim after which I have layered it up with two mounts one yellow and one beige. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white card and mounted this in the same as the image.

The base card is a 7.50"x 7.50" white card onto which I have layered up a piece of yellow pearlescent card and one of three papers from the a Spring Collection from Nitwit Downloads, this first one has lots of little hearts and leaves on a yellow background. The second mount is another piece of the yellow card, and onto this I have stuck the second pattern paper this one has a checks in pinks, whites and greens, and the third layer has been mounted onto a piece of the beige pearlescent card and this paper also has a check pattern in a beige colour. These were then stuck to the base card in a L shape.

Before sticking the first layer to the base card I have stuck a green and pink spotted ribbon around the bottom of the card across the beige paper. Then I have stuck my mounted image to the left hand side at the top and the mounted sentiments to the bottom right hand side.

I then created a large flower with some of my silk flowers and stuck a silver spacer and pearl brad through the centre with a bee charm hung from the back. Before sticking this to the card I punched out some fern leaves and arranged them in some silicone glue and then put the flower on top. To finish of Ive stuck two flower buttons on the ribbon strip.

Good morning my dear Shirley
Your card is again lovely and beautiful!
Unfortunately, I had the image of the Bambi Award remove, because it is copyrighted!
Look here:
It would be a shame if this great problems we would get!
I go right back into the garden!
