This card is to cover two Challenges the first one is Mo's Challenge, "New Beginnings" and the other is the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, "Sketchtastic". Ive used one of Mo's freebie images for this one, as it clearly shows Bella and Bronte enjoying the New Year, and the card was made up using the sketch from the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. Ive printed the image out onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, after which I have cut it out with my rotatrim and used a pink inkpad to distress the edges, and then mounted it onto a piece of pink pearlescent card. The sentiment is one of Dovecraft ones and this was stamped also onto white card and then cut out and distressed again around the edge with the same pink inkpad and then mounted onto another piece of pink card.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, with a first layer of blue card, and one of three papers Ive used from the Bearly Mine Extreme Designs Cd, the first paper is a blue one with stars and explosions on which was stuck on a piece of blue card, and for the second mount Ive used a piece of pink card and a pink tartan patterned paper, this was positioned down the middle of the first layer, and for the third mount Ive used my last patterned paper a blue tartan design on another piece of blue card and this was stuck across the base layers towards the bottom.
Ive then stuck a lace strip around the card from top to bottom over the middle of the pink layer, this was attached at the back of the first layer, which was then stuck to my base card. Ive then positioned my mounted image onto my card towards the middle and my greeting was stuck to the right hand side at the bottom.
To finish of Ive created a flower from some of my left over paper, these were punched out with my punches, moulded with my ball tool and through the centre I have put a gem brad and a spacer, from this I have hung a teddy bear charm. Then Ive positioned a ring of different fern leaves before sticking my flower on top.
