Bearlymine Seventh Challenge - "A Sketch by Marie"

Yet again another fortnight has flown by and we are now onto our seventh Challenge this one is hosted by my fellow team member Marie of kompis-kort-by-mi.blogspot and she has given us a fabulous sketch to follow here it is
I really enjoyed using this sketch as its a lovely straight forward one not to many fiddley bits to contend with. Anyway for this Challenge we are being sponsered by the following companies:-

I think this Challenge blog is one of the best ones for their stunning prizes and whats being offered this fortnight is unbelievable any one of those would be my choice and I hope that you also will be trying for them to, weve been getting more and more entrants each fortnight and Im sure this time will not be any different. I also want to let you know that Donna my Team Leader has a brand new Digi "Paper Lace"set on her Bearlymine Webshop Blog and you must pop over and see it for yourself, heres a preview of it and by the time this post is posted it should have
a brand new name. Now I had better get a move on and show you the card that I created for this challenge and here it is:-
I have used this time one of the Whiff of Joy stamps this is "Willow with basket" and I stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, then I cut her out with my square Nestabilite die and used a scoll stamp around the edge before mounting her onto a square scalloped mount out of yellow pearlescent card. The sentiment is one from my stash which I thought went well with my image, this was also stamped onto white card then cut out using my rotatrim and mounted on another piece of the same yellow card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of yellow card and one of two papers from Donna's "Delicious Delights" papers and if you click on the title it will take you to her webshop for you to buy it. This first paper is a very yummy strawberry one, on top of this I have laid a piece of yellow card thats been put through my cuttlebug with a leaf embossing folder, then for my second paper Ive used a cherry one which also comes from the same paper set but this was stuck at the angle as the sketch shows, on top of this is my mounted image and the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of I have stuck in the top left hand corner a large daisy head on top of some punched leaves. I do hope that this card will inspire you to take part in our Challenges, do please pop across to the Blogspot and see what the rest of the team have created for you, they are stunning.

Hi Shirley, this card is so... clever, do you know what I mean? It's something about the way the papers work so well together with the embossing I think. Altogether beautiful!
