A Card for two Challenges

Good Morning Ladies well here we are yet another week nearer to Christmas dont you agree that this year has gone whizzing by and I carnt believe that the summer is nearly over, luckily my hubby has at last managed to book us a holiday in the Canaries in a couple of weeks and Im hoping it will be a bit warmer there than here at the moment.
Todays card has been created for two challenges, Penny Black at Allsorts "Punch Away" and Totally Papercrafts "Happy Birthday", and Ive used this cute little lass from PB for my image, Ive stamped her onto smooth white card and coloured her with my copic pens, after which I cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her onto some blue card. The senitment is one of my stash ones and this was mounted in the same way.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card and one of four papers from my Kay Miller "Light of my Life" downloads, the first paper is a very pretty blue flower all over pattern and for the other three I have cut strips and used my doily Martha Stewart punch along all the edges and layered them up and positioned on the right hand side, and over the seam Ive used a pretty ribbon and attached it to the back of the first layer.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle and the sentiment to the bottom right hand side.
The two flowers are ones I created from a tutorial in the Stampin Up magazine, and Ive popped some pearls in the centers of them.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-

Hi Shirley

Absolutely devine !

These new stamps from PB are so lovely and I adore everything you have done with this one.

Agree with what you say about this year and Summer, but I think the fact we never really got a Summer has not helpded and made it go all the quicker.

Thank you for sharing with us at Penny Black at Allsorts this month and good luck.
