A Card for a Special Challenge for Crafters Companion

Good Afternoon Everyone, well its poured of rain all day here and the only thing thats enjoying it a very large toad thats taken residence in my basket of Bizzie Lizzies it made me jump when I was watering it the other day, anyway he better make the most of it as Im determined that the weather is going to change to something nicer as Im right fed up with all this cold and wet stuff.
Anyway todays card has been created for a special challenge on Crafts Companion as its hopefully gives you the chance to win the next set of Humphrey stamps, hes certainly a cutie and I thought Id give it a go. Ive used these sweet pair chatting away to one another and Ive stamped it onto white card then used my copics to colour them, then used the Nestabilitie No.1 to cut it out and then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is yet another of the stamps from the set and this has been mounted onto a piece of blue pearlescent card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with the first mount of mauve card and one of three papers that Ive printed from the co-ordinating Cds, the first one a very pretty pink background with misty looking flowers on, the second is a yellow spotty one thats have both edges punched with the cherish border punch form Martha Stewart, then on top I have put a further paper a pretty heart paper with a mauve background this has been put on the slant. Over the top of all these I have wrapped a piece of mauve satin ribbon and attached it to the back with a beautiful piece of lace on top.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, I then used some of the left over papers to create two flowers from the new Die namices rolled flower, and stuck them to the card on top of some punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:
