A Card for Kennys Challenge

Good Morning Ladies, well here we are another week started, these weeks are going by so quickly before you know it, it will be Christmas again. I hope youve all had a lovely weekend, yesterday was beautiful the sun was hot and I sat in the garden for a little while and did a bit of sewing. Hubby got back from his volunteering and was in better spirits than I expected it seemed the thick socks saved his ankle, but he seemed a bit dissappointed that he wasnt a lot stronger than he expected, it seemed they were digging holes for posts so that they could put up a fence, and he was saying that he found the carrying of gravel for the hole was very tiring he wasnt as strong as he thought he was, hes 65 what does he expect.
Anyway todays card has been created for Kennys Challenge, this week is Donnas sketch (from Bearlymine Designs) a really lovely simple one, Ive even used three of her gorgeous papers. The digi stamp Devastatia was printed onto smooth white card and coloured with my copic pens, Ive used a circle spellbinders die to cut her out and a scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash its a selection of girl stamps ideal for this image.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card, with a first mount of pink card with two of the papers from Donna, one is a pale pink paper from her new designs released this weekend called Plain Simple and the second one of her pretty pink rose stripped pattern, these were split and layed on this first mount, across the middle Ive used one of her plaid designs but have used one of the Martha Stewart border punches along the edge. On the other edge Ive used a piece of ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
On top of this Ive stuck my mounted image in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right, Ive used three large gems across the centre on the right, and finished of the card with a floral spray of roses and wild cheery blossom flowers that were stuck to the card with some punched out leaves and silicone glue.
This card is being entered for the following challenges:-

Shirley your card is absolutely gorgeous, so pretty and what a fab image.
Glad hubby's ankle was o.k, bless him it's hard to accept getting older and slower at times, my mum struggles with it at 60 and gets cross that she's not as energetic as she used to be
love and hugs Mandy xx
