Mo Mannings Challenge - "1 Ribbon, 2 Buttons or Brads and 3 Designer Papers"

Hi Girls, well if was a very busy day yesterday and I even managed to get one more Challenge card done to.
I got my pillows of my bed washed and back on my bed by 6 oclock and two sets of curtains washed, ironed and hung back up to, so Im gradually getting the Spring Cleaning done and with this beautiful weather it certainly helps to.
Anyway this card is created for this weeks Challenge from Mo 1 ribbon, 2 buttons or brads, and 3 designer papers. And Ive used this gorgeous young lass Jordon "Multitasking" and we ladies know all about that dont we? Ive printed her onto white card and used my copic pens to colour her, sorry Im back to using them again. Anyway I then used my Nestabilitie Label Die 9 to cut her out and created a mount by drawing around the edge of it, I also used a sentiment I had in my stash, this one is a Stampin Up one. Ive cut it out and mounted it the same as a my image.
The base card is a 7"x 7" card and Ive used a Teal coloured card for both the mounts and the first layer on my card, Ive used three papers from my Nitwit Downloads for the card, I scouted around all my downloads to find the right colour combinations. The first one is a ring type pattern and the second is a leaf pattern, on which Ive used a Martha Stewart border and corner punch and then stuck this on top of the base layer. The third layer is a strip that Ive punched along both edges with the same border punch and this was stuck down the card with a ribbon mounted on top and attached at the back of the first layer.
I then stuck my mounted image on top, and my sentiment to the bottom on the right. The flowers are some from my craft stash, and the two buttons have then been threaded with some sparkly green cord tied and stuck to the top on the right hand side.
