A Card for Someone Special

Morning Girls it looks as if its going to be a nice day the sun is out and theres not to many clouds in the sky, lets hope it means that the weather is going to start improving and we might just be getting backto our warmer days again. Firstly I want to thank you for the lovely comments so many of you left me over my Tutorial, I would if Id had several pairs of hands risked filming it, but when my hubby tried to do a trial run, the results would have made you feel you were on a roller coaster, as his zooming in and out was a bit YUK.
Anyway todays card has been created for a couple of friends of mine whos Wedding Anniversary is October, I thought this was such a pretty image from Lili of the Valley and Im hoping that they will accept it.
The papers are the new Henbury Hall set from Papermania, there are some really pretty papers in the pack, but unfortunately there is only one paper for each pattern which seems a shame.
Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, finishing of with some stickles to give it a bit of glitter. I then cut her out with my Nestabilitie Label 12, and mounted her onto the Fair Isle pendant.
The card for me is a 6"x 6" size which is not one I usually use but the papers arnt wide enough for a 7" card so Ive had to resort to cutting me base card down by a inch. The first layer is a pretty blue pearlescent card with the one of two papers Ive used from the pad set, a pretty blue rose paper, on top of which Ive created a square with one of the blue stripped paper and a all around punch set from Martha Stewart.
I must apologise before we go any further that the mounted image isnt quite straight, hope it doesnt spoil the card to much, I also stuck a piece of lace with ribbon threaded through underneath the image on top of my square. The sentiment is one of my craft stash, I believe its from the Hero Arts set.
To finish of Ive created a flower with some of the left over paper, and popped a spacer and pearl brad through the centre before sticking it to my card on top of some punched out leaves.
