Mo Mannings Challenge - "Birthday"

Todays card has been created for this weeks Mo's Challenge "Birthday", Ive made this card for one of our granddaughters as she is one in April I thought that this image was right for her. Ive printed this digi image onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, I then cut it out with one of the Nestabilitie label dies, I also used the same die on some pink pearlescent card for the mount, before sticking them together at an angle Ive used a pink inkpad around the edges of the main image. The sentiment is one I created and printed from my computer and this was also mounted in the same way as the main image.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of pink pearlescent card with one of four papers Ive printed from the Nitwit Downloads this one is called Cherry Blossoms, and the first paper is one of a pretty design with pink and white flowers with green background. the second layer is a pink and white check, and Ive used a Pansy Martha Stewart border punch, this is a new one and is so pretty, Ive also used the same punch on the third and forth layers, these were stuck down the centre of my base layer, over the top Ive stuck a lace strip and stuck it to the back of the first layer.
The mounted image was then stuck to the centre of this and my sentiment strip was positioned at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive created a flower with some of the left over paper then Ive put a pink pearl brad through the centre of a silver mount and then hung a princess charm from the back, I then stuck my flower onto the card at the top on the left by firstly using some punched out leaves which have been arranged in a circle and then my flower was put on top of this.
