One Card for Two Challenges

Well Ive taken your advice girls and have stayed in and created my card for two Challenges, Mo's "Simple and White" and Cute Cards Thursday "Metal Mania". I dont know why my camera makes my photo's look so misty, it doesnt matter whether I use the flash or not, they still look rather washed out, anyway I am trying and its the same camera that I used for the photos in the post below, so somethings not right, its probably me.
Anyway Ive used this lovely dog image "Honey" for my card, its been printed out and coloured with my copic pens, then Ive used my Scor-pal board to emboss two lines around the edge of my image, and then mounted it onto a piece of white/cream pearlescent card.
The base card this time is a 6"x 6" white card, and Ive used a piece of white card and embossed it with the new Asian embossing Cuttlebug Folders, these are A5 size but arnt quite big enough for my piece of card, so I cut in on the diagonal then covered it with a piece of white braid.
The sentiment is one that I had in my stash, and Ive then cut it out with my heart Nestabilitie Die and made a mount out of the scalloped one and another piece of the same pearlescent card. The flower is made up with punched out white Retro Flower pieces with a pearl brad and spacer popped through the centre with a heart charm hanging of the bottom.
