Bearlymine Designs Six Challenge - "A Mothers Day" Card

Its amazing how quickly these weeks are speeding by and we are already onto our 6th Challenge and this one is being hosted by "Gina"  one of my fellow very talented design team members, if you click on her name you will see what I mean. The theme for this fortnight is "A Mothers Day" card, and we are being sponsered this time by "Whimsey Stamps" and also by the following companies:-

What a fabulous choice of prizes and Im sure you will be over the moon to win one of them I know I would be. I would also like to thank all those people who took part in the last Challenge we had over 150 entrants and Ive a feeling this one will be just as popular, who hasnt got to create a Mothers Day card for their Mum.
Donna has a brand new Digi Paper "Lacey Vintage Dreams" Set out now, do please pop over to her webshop and see it for yourself:-
Anyway heres my DT card for this Challenge:-
I have used this sweet image of "Grace with Roses" from Whimsey Digi Stamps and you will find her here
isnt she lovely, its one of the Chrissy's images and Ive used one of the coordinating digi sentiments to go with her. I stamped onto white card and used my copic pens to colour her, I then cut her out completely and mounted her onto a piece of white card that had been put through my cuttlebug with a swirl embossing folder, I also used a pink inkpad on it to bring the swirls up, this was then mounted onto two cut out Die-namic Doilies that have been of set from each other. The sentiment was cut out with my heart Nestabilities.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink pearlescent card and one of two papers from Donna's Bearlymine Design Papers the first one is an all over red base with swirls around the edge, on top of this I have put another piece of the same pink card on which I have used a deep heart border punch on both sides, then on top of this is a pink background paper with a white heart pattern on and I used the same heart border punch from Martha Stewart, both the papers come from the "Love Dreams" digi paper set.
Around the middle I have wrapped a pink organza ribbon that has a satin edge to it, and then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the left hand side. To finish of I created a flower spray with several sizes of roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and some punched out fern leaves, this was arranged in the bottom right hand corner. I will be giving this card to my Mother in Law for Mothers day, I hope she will like it.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will pop over to the Challenge Blog Bearlymine and see for yourself what the rest of the Design Team have created and Im sure it will inspire you to take part in this Challenge with the chance of winning one of those fabulous prizes.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
