Bealymine Designs Sixteenth Challenge - "Charm the Spots Off"

Good Morning Everyone, well this is so nice to get back in my craft room and at last get a post done without worrying about scheduling it a week in advance I was lucky that it actually went well and posted itself without any problems the ones I did schedule. Its amazing how quickly time flies by and here we are at our Sixteenth Challenge and for this one we want you to "Charm the Spots Off" us and of course this means we want to see lots of spots and dots on your cards. We are being sponsered this time by:-

Wow five chances to win some really fabulous prizes, you are definitely going to be pleased and excited about this Challenge and here is my card for this fortnights Challenge.
And I have used this gorgeous image from Tickle Pink Stamps and she is 60s Ivy and you will find her here I have printed her out firstly onto white card and coloured her face, hair, arms and legs with copic and tria pens, then I printed the image out again onto green and blue paper to paper piece her up in layers. The image was then cut out with a large rectangle Nestabilitie and and a larger one was cut out also for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and my first paper is a blue and white paper then on top is a grean and white one thats been cut in a white strip and Ive used the Doily edge border punch from Martha Stewart on both edges, both these beautiful papers come from Donna's Bearlymine Designs "Simply Dots" digi papers and you will find them here. Across the middle I have then wrapped a white blue and white spotted ribbon then on top is a narrow green and white spotted ribbon, I created a ribbon with some of the left over ribbon and tied a charm into it.
To finis of I have created three flowers from some of the left over paper, these were made with the Die-namics dies, they were then stuck to my card in the top right hand corner with some silicone glue on top of some punched out leaves.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will pop across to the Bearlymine Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of our very talented Team Members have created for your enjoyment and hope that this encourage you to take part in this fortnights Challenge that will "Charm the Spots Off" you.
This card will be entered in the following Challenges:-

Green flowers makes it more attractive. It is so great work you done. Ordering of three ribbons in one colour is excellent.

Found a perfect card for my sister on her birthday, she is too much crazy on paper work, she is 10 year old and very intelligent for art and craft subject.
