A Card for Many Challenges

Good Morning Ladies well Ive pre-scheduled this as I will probably be doing my ironing when this goes out, so I will link it to the challenges when Ive finished. Anyway this card has been created for four challenges and anymore I can find on the circuit, the first challenge is Penny Black at Allsorts "Its begining to look like Christmas", Sir Stampalots "Christmas Traditions", Wild Orchids "Classic Christmas" and Creative Inspirations "Girly, Glitz and Glamour", and I thought this little sweetheart meets all those things, and shes by Penny Black and Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, after which Ive used the large Mega Curved Retangle to cut her out and then drawn around the die to create the mount for it.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card, onto this I have layered up a piece of white card on which I have used my versafine inkpad and white embossing powder to create a backing paper, then I used the snowflake punches on the corners. On top of this I have done a similar thing with some velum and cut this into a 5" square and used the same corner and border punch for this square then stuck it to the base layer and stuck it down with some velum glue. Over these I have wrapped a wired ribbon around to the back and fixed behind the base mount.
Then I positioned my mounted image in the middle, and created a three flower spray down the left hand side with different sized poinsetta's, some holly berries and punched out holly leaves, these were fixed to the card with some silicone glue, my final flourish is some star gems down the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Dorcas said...

THis is so cute!
Ironing, what's that? lol I was cleaning up the other day and you know what I found? A big cobweb going from the wall to a potted plant to the iron. :-) And then another cobweb going from another wall to the vacuum! lol
No, there's no dust on my crafting table. :-)
IN my defense, I have wood floors so never need the vacuum and I use a dryer for our clothes so they don't get wrinkly. As for the cobwebs, well its not that I never SAW them but other things got in the way of me doing anything about it.....
Thanks so much for joing us at Creative Inspirations!
