Another Card for Many Challenges

Good Evening Ladies, sorry this is a bit late today but its been a busy day for us, we went shopping in Cardiff which is a 42 mile journey from home, (we do a months shopping in one go) and then when we got back I had to put it away, I hate to think how many times Id picked up this shopping but Im so glad its now its all in the cupboard. The next thing hubby and I decided to do was, as its been such a beautiful day we would do some gardening and cut down the Wisteria and Jasmine from around the front room window, hopefully to make the Wisteria bloom, its not done that yet, so its taken drastic measures on my part, it will or it wont, and if it wont its going to be dug up in a years time. Then I decided to do a pile of ironing which I hate, I had 3 sets of duvet covers and pillowcases (the remaining legacy of the grandchildrens visit) to do and eight of my hubbys shirts so Im rather late getting this card done so I do apologise for that.
Anyway Ive decided to enter this card in a couple of challenges the first is Kennys "Bold and Bright"one, and then Sir Stampalots "Bring on the Bling" which I feel it will cover both of those quite easily. Ive used this image of Kennys not sure at the moment whats shes called but shes a sweetheart, Ive used my copic pens to colour her and Ive then cut her out with my Spellbinders dies, the sentiment is one of my stash ones and its been cut out in the same way.
The base card is 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card and one of three papers from Kay Millers Downloads this set is called "Hey Girlfriend" a very pretty white paper with flower sprays in several colours, the second paper is a pink one mounted on pink card with the corners punched out, the third layer is another of the papers in fact its the same pattern as the first one but in blue, Ive used a border and corner punches on this one. Across the middle Ive stuck two strips of lace with a middle crochet strip in the centre and attached them to the back of the first layer, Ive then stuck my sentiment at the bottom on the right and my mounted image in the middle.
To finish of Ive created a flower spray with several different coloured roses in pink and blue and mounted it onto my card with silicone glue and a few punched out leaves. The last thing Ive done is stuck down two gem swirls in both the top and bottom opposite corners, to give it bling. Hope you like the end result.
Im entering this card in the following challenges:-

Gorgeous card Shirley. I love these images I just wish they came in rubber! Love all the bling and beautiful embellies.
You have been a busy bee today! I hate food shopping but I hate gardening even more, it's the bugs and dirt I don't like, I'm a real wimp!
Take care
Love Elaine xx

Patty said...

This is a beautiful card. I agree with Elaine, I wish the digi's came in rubber. I still have problems with ink from the printer smearing, no matter what I do. This is a lovely take on the bright challenge!
