Bearlymine Designs 45th Challenge - "Shaped Cards"

Good Morning All, I do hope your enjoying the drier weather, I certainly took advantage of it on Saturday and shampooed all my carpets, luckily most of them did'nt take to long to dry and they do look a lot cleaner to. You should have seen the dirt that came up out of them you don't realise how much dirt you grind into your carpets do you? Anyway back to this weeks Bearlymine Designs Challenge, and for this one we want to see "Shaped Cards" some of you do brilliantly at this, Im not so good so I rather cheated and just cut a fancy edge to mine.
Anyway before I show you my card I had better let you know who the sponsor is for this weeks Challenge and that is

Donna's papers are just gorgeous you really should go and visit her website and see for yourself, she puts such a lot of thought into her designs and they are really reasonable in this modern time. And now here is my card for this weeks challenge.
I used a large Go Create die to create the shape of my card, then used smaller ones for the mounts, the beautiful papers I have used are from Donna's "Petunia Parade" digi paper set and you will find them here. I have also used a Lili of the Valley image which I have stamped then coloured with my copic pens before cutting it out completely and positioning if on top of a Cheery Lynn Heart Die shape.
And before placing my image in the centre I wrapped a piece of binding tape around the middle and stuck it to the back of the first mount.
The sentiment is one from my stash thats been stamped onto a piece of white card then mounted on pink and positioned at the bottom on the right. Ive also used a swirl of pearls in the bottom left and top right corners, and for the final flourish I used another of the Cheery Lynn Flower dies then I layered it up and positioned in the top left hand corner and stuck it to the card with silicone glue on top of several leaves that were also cut using yet more of the Cheery Lynn dies.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this "Shaped Cards" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
