A Card for two Challenges

Good Afternoon Ladies, well heres a colour combo to knock your eyes out Hot Pink and Orange which is the challenge from Die Cut Dreams Challenge this week and Im also going to enter it into the Sparkle Dreams Sketch Challenge. Before I go any further I want to say that I was a bit surprised to find that Id been given a top 4 four award for Die cut Dreams last week, and Im absolutely thrilled thank you so much ladies its an honour for sure.
Anyway Ive used this little Hanglar and Stranglar image isnt she a cutie, its one that was passed onto me by one of my fabulous friends, I want to thank the person who sent it and Im sorry to say Ive forgotten who it was but they will know Im sure, so bless you again and a big thank you from me. Anyway Ive coloured her with my copic pens then cut her own with my square nestabilitie and used the new eyelet one for her mount. The sentiment is one of the Hobby Art ones and Ive given it the same treatment but with a circle die instead.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of bright pink card and one of three papers from the Kay Miller Downloads this one is called "Happy Hearts", I love using her papers as they are really beautiful and some are quite funky to. This first paper is a pretty all over flower pattern on white, the second mount is another pink paper on a piece of pink card, the third is a orange plain pattern on a piece of orange card.
On top of this I have mounted my image and my sentiment to the top on the right as the sketch shows, Ive also punched out two label tags and popped some bright pink pearls on them. To finish of Ive created a flower spray in shades of hot pink and orange at the top on the right with some punched leaves mounted on some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Beautiful card, Shirley! I love this H&S image and you've colored her so beautifully. Love all the pretty flowers you used. Sorry I've been MIA . . . cleaning out and reorganizing my craft room and now I can't (immediately) find what I want not like when it was messy and I knew where things are! I'm taking a break and what a pleasant surprise to see your wonderful creations! Hugs, Cami
