Stampin for Weekend Challenge - Pink and Grey

My card today has been created for this weeks Stampin for Weekend Challenge, it has to be in Pink and Grey. Ive actually used a digi stamp by Mo Manning, this one is a beautiful one of a little girl cuddling her dog. Ive used my copic pens to colour it then Ive cut it out with one of my Nestabilitie dies, I then cut another out of pink pearlescent card and twisted it and mounted them together with some foam tape. I then stamped out the sentiment and punched it out with one of my new Nestabilitie tag dies, and cut around the white edge and mounted it onto another tag Id punched out with pink card and mounted it with some foam tape.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, and for my first layer I have used some pink pearlescent card and papers from Donna's new Bearly Mine Extreme Designs Vol.III, the first one is a pink floral paper, and Ive then used another of the papers and my loop Martha Stewart Boarder punch along the two edges, this was then stuck down the middle of the base layer, and on top of this I have stuck a grey piece of pearlescent card with yet a further paper from Donna's new Cd.

Ive then stuck my mounted image at the top of this middle layer, and at the bottom I have put my sentiment tag, firstly threading through some ribbon and sticking it to the back of the first layer.

I then printed out the New Spotted Flowers from Donna they are absolutely gorgeous onto semi-gloss photo paper, and then Ive cut them out and moulded them with my ball tool and mounted the three layers up one on top of the other with some foam pads. Before sticking them to my card Ive punched out some fern leaves and arranged them in some silicone glue then stuck my flowers on top, I also put some yellow stickle glue in the centres of them. To finish of Ive stuck three grey buttons at the bottom on the right hand side.

Hey there Shirley! Another beautiful card! I am never disappointed when I visit your blog - you always have the best cards to share! I have a question for you: Do you sketch out your card before you make it or do you have the layout already in your head and then just start putting your card together? I love all your cards, Shirley! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend! Hugs & Aloha, Linda
