Bearlymine Designs Challenge Eighteen - "Flowers, Flowers, Flowers"

Good Morning Everyone and a Happy Tuesday to you as weve again arrived at a Challenge day and this time we want to see all your "Flowers" either bought or created by yourselves and Im sure that wont be difficult as its one of the most used embellishments for our cards. And this time we are being sponsered by the following :-

Before I carry on I want to let you know that Donna of Bearlymine Designs has Brand New Paper
Sets on her Website, and Im sure you also know she has a "Summer Sale" on as well at the moment.

So do pop over and see what fabulous offers she has for you, her papers are stunning and really good value. Heres my card for this fortnights Challenge.
For my card I have used this gorgeous Bildmalarna image and coloured her with my copic and Tria pens, then used Nestabilitie Labels 16 to cut it out then drawn around the edge of the die onto blue card and cut it out with scissors for a mount. The sentiment is from my stash, unfortunately I carnt remember at the moment which one it is, but this has been treated in the same way as my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and one of two papers from Donna's Bearlymine Designs "Summer Roses" the first one is a pretty blue background with roses on, the second is a pink one with roses that has been cut into a 5" square and one of the Martha Stewart border and corner punches has been used on it, I then ran a heart die from Cherry Lynn through my cuttlebug with yet a bit more of the blue card and have placed that on top of the two layers. Then around the middle I have wrapped a piece of blue seam binding and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. I created a bow from more of the same seam binding and stuck it to the left of the image with a silver butterfly on the knot.  I then created a flower spray of several sized roses in the top right hand corner and stuck it down to the card with some silicone glue and some punched out leaves. The final flourish is the pearls top and bottom on the left hand side.
Now that youve seen my card and I do hope you will pop across to The Bearlymine Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and I hope this will give you the push to take part in this fortnights "Flowers, Flowers, Flowers" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
