One Card again for Two Challenges

Todays card is to cover two Challenges, Mo Mannings "Thank You Card" and Cute Card Thursday "Beads"
Ive used this sweet digi image of this ballerina taking a bow, and coloured her with my copic pens then cut her out with my rotatrim and distressed the edges with my pink cats eys inkpad, after which Ive layered her up onto a piece of pink pearlescent card. The greeting is one of my craft stash stamps that Ive stamped it onto a piece of white card then punched it out with my Blossoms Nestabilitie die, drawn around the edge of the die and cut it out of pink card as well. Both this and the image were attached to their mounts with some foam tape.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, onto which I have layered up a piece of pink card with one of three papers from one of my Nitwit Downloads, the first one has a pink base with a heart pattern on, the second layer is a pink paper with spots Ive punched around the edge with my new Martha Stewart border punch, and done the same with the third layer a cream paper similar in design as the first one. These were layered on top of one another a stuck to the centre of the first mount. Across the centre I have stuck a piece of lace that Ive have sewn some pink beads at intervals along the two edges, this was stuck to the back of the first layer.
On top of this I have positioned my mounted image, and my stamped greeting to the right hand side at the bottom.
Ive then created four flowers with the Nellie Snellen punches with some of the left over paper, and stuck them to my card on top of some punched out fern leaves, on one of them Ive have hung two beads that Im using as charms. To finish of I have stuck another bead flower in the corner on the left hand side.

Hi Shirley

I hope you have recovered from your dreaded germs now!

Loving your card. A super cute image that is coloured perfectly.

I can think of a few little girls that would love this.

Did you notice that I finally answered your 35 questions? Thank you for thinking of me. You had a lot going on at the time you sent it to me so I delayed a while before I posted my response (and sent people your way).

Have a lovely Sunday.

Love Jules xx
