Bearlymine's Fourth Challenge - "Ribbons and Pearls"

I cannot believe that we are already onto our fourth Challenge, and we had a really fabulous response to our last one we had over 90 entries and each challenge we seem to be getting more people taking part and I do so hope that this one will take us over 100 that would really be a bonus for our very hard working Design Team Leader Donna. And of course she also creates the most gorgeous Digi paper sets and I do so hope you will pop across to her webshop Bearlymine Designs and see her latest ones believe me they are stunning.
Anyway this fornights challenge being hosted by my team member Sarah Louise, you must incorporate "Ribbons and Pearls" on your card, and we are being sponsered by the following people:

  Crafty Emma - offering Memory Box Fernbrae Paper Pad 6x6
  Kenny K - 5 Digi's of the winner's choice  
  The Ribbon Girl - a selection of cut lengths of ribbon, pins, dewdrops 
  Bearlymine Designs - 2 sets of winner's choice

Now arnt these fabulous prizes and Im sure you wont be able to resist taking part in the Challenge, its not fair we arnt allowed to do so, you lucky people.
Anyway heres my card for this Challenge:-
Well as you can see Ive used Uptown Angel from Kenny's Digi Downloads, Ive printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens then cut her out with my oval Nestabilitie die, and used the scalloped one for the mount, the sentiment is yet again one of the LOV circle stamps, and this has been cut with a circle die and mounted onto a scalloped one as well.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue pearlescent card and one of three papers from Donna's January and February Freebie downloads, you will find these on the same site as Donna's shop, then Ive stuck the first one onto the first mount and then put a strip of a diamond pattern on top, the third mount is another of the flower ones which was placed to the left, across the middle I have wrapped some seam binding and then created a bow with the same colour ribbon which was stuck to the right hand side, with a swirl of pearls going underneath it.
My mounted image was then positioned to the left hand side and my sentiment at the bottom on the right, I also cut out two corners with my Marianne dies which were also stuck on the left hand side top and bottom. The last thing to finish of is the flowers that Ive stuck at the top on the left around my mounted image.
Now please pop across to Bearly Mine Challenge blogspot to see the rest of my very talent team members and it should encourage you to take part in this fortnights Challenge.
Please dont forget to come back tomorrow as we are launching our brand new Challenge blogpost "The Paper Shelter" and Im sure you will want to see what weve got in store for you.

Hallo Shirley, thanks for your comment on the rock chick, I have just made it back to the computer from the washing. It's a lovely day here and I have been trying to make the most of it. Dogs are loving it of course! Makes carrying large baskets of washing across muddy garden a fun challenge eeek. I love this card you have used those fab corners again, I have just ordered something similar, cos I liked them so much. Love this pearlescent card that you have used, makes it look very glam. Hugs Heidi x
