Bearlymine Eleventh Challenge - "Die Cuts and Lace"

Good Morning Everyone, well another fortnight has flown by and here we are at our Eleventh Challenge, and this one is being hosted by my Design Team Leader Donna of "Bearlymine Design" and she has chosen this theme of "Die Cuts and Lace" Im so glad its not my job this week to pick the winners of our last challenge as your work using my theme of vintage easel was stunning. Anyway this time we have four sponsers and they are:-

Wow what a fabulous collection of prizes what I would do to be able to win at least one of them, its so unfair we dont get the chance to do that, oh well never mind heres my card for this Challenge.
Well Ive used this sweet image from a sheet of Fairy stamps that I bought from Crafts and Me by Bridgit Ashwood, you will find them here on their website I did have a peep yesterday but I couldnt find them, but I love this particular image as hes such a cutie, that I stamped him onto white card then used my copics to colour him, as hes quite big I then cut him out with my rotatrim and mounted him onto blue card, the sentiment is one that I found in my stash and have treated it in the same way as the image.
The base card is 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of blue card and papers from Donna's "Paper Lace, Spring Stripes and Spring Surprise" the first paper is a very pretty yellow background with a beautiful border of blue flowers, and on top of this I have used a circle of blue plaid and a strip mount of multi coloured stripes. I then positioned my mounted image towards the left of my card with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
I then cut out two leave sprays with one of the Marianne dies and then stuck at the bottom along the left side and with a piece of the left of paper I have punched along the edge with one of the lace punches then made it into a circle before sticking it to my card at the top on the right. I did use some glossy accents on the bubbles and some glitter on the little lads wings.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop across to The Bearlymine Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you and hopefully that this will inspire you to take part in the fortnights Challenge of "Die Cuts and Lace".
