Another Card for Two Challenges

Hi everyone, well its a lovely day so far, it looks as though most of the icy patches have melted and we might decide to go for a walk this afternoon as it seems a shame to waste it.
Todays card has been created again for two challenges, the Just Magnolia Thank You Card, and the Stampin for the Weekend Sketch Challenge. Ive used this new stamp from my club stamp set, and after stamping her onto white card Ive coloured her with my copic pens, then I punched her out with my circle Nestabilitie, and I then did a scalloped one from green pearlescent card for the mount, and before sticking them together I have used a pale green inkpad and distressed the edge. The sentiment is one of my crafty stash ones and this was done in the same way as the stamped image.
For my base card Ive used a 7.25"x 7.25" white card, and for my first layer Ive used a yellow card with one of three papers that Ive used from my Nitwit Downloads, this one is a pretty daisy flower one, and for my second layer Ive used a green paper with spots on a piece of green card, then for the third layer Ive used a yellow check on a piece of yellow card. All these had their corners punched of to just give them a different look.
The mounted stamped image was then stuck to the right hand side, with the sentiment positioned in the middle under it. To finish of I have used a rose and two open flowers for a spray, and before stick them to my card, Ive sprayed it with a silver sparkle spray from Crafters Companion, and some green stickels on the stamens of the open flowers, and the last thing was the three pearls that I positioned down the yellow strip, amd a couple of punched out flourishes at the top.
