Just Magnolia Challenge - Punch Outs

Morning Ladies, the sun is out once again and Ive got to move myself this morning as my hubby wants to go to Cheltenham to get some bits from Maplins, so Id better get my fingers out and get a move on.
Todays card was created for the Just Magnolia Challenge, and this week its all to do with punch outs, Ive used this lovely Tilda image in her bridesmaid outfit or is it her prom outfit, I carnt remember, anyway I originally coloured it for my last Just Magnolia card then didnt use it. Anyway Ive coloured her with my copic pens then cut her out with the new Mega Oval Nestabilitie dies and use the scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one of CC stamps that I bought from Nikki a couple of weeks ago in her sale, its got lots of girl things in the set and I felt this one was right for this card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white one with a first layer of pink card and one of four papers from the Pink Parfeit set from Papermania, and Ive also used a pink paper on the second layer, what Ive done is stick the first layer to the card then layered up the rest of the four papers, Ive used my new pansy border punch from Martha Stewart on all the edges then stuck them together at staggered intervals.
On top of this, down the side edge Ive stuck a flower lace strip and my mounted image by the side, the sentiment was stuck at the bottom, and I created two flowers with my retro flower punch with the left over pieces of paper, moulded them and then attached them together with a pearl brad and silver spacer, then arranged some punched out leaves in a circle and popped my flowers on top.
Anyway Id better go now, hope you have a wonderful weekend with love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx
