Challenge #59 - Bearlymine Designs - "Flowers Galore"

Good Morning Crafters, today is my first challenge as Team Leader for the "A" Team over on the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot and Im really excited and nervous, I just hope that I fulfil Donna's wishes in running it at least near to her standards, only time will tell. Anyway for this Challenge we want to see lots and lots of "Flowers" on your card, and we are being sponsored this time by:

Wow thats some awesome prizes and I know if your like me both of them would be welcome in my craft stash.
We were so lucky to receive a digi of our choice to play with and heres my choice.

Isnt she a corker, her name is "Princess Pia" and you will find her here, Ive got to be totally honest with you it took me 4 attempts to get her hair as I wanted it, and to be honest Im quite proud of the end result I hope you like it to. Ive coloured her with my copic pens then used the oval Nestabilitie Die to cut her out, then a Scalloped one for the mount out of purple card. The sentiment is one from Whimsey Stamps and Dies and I used the pumpkin die to mount it on.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of purple card and the paper I have used are Donna's "Happy Hauntings" and you will find them here, a background of purple with spiders and pumpkins on. On top of this I have used a orange paper from the same paper set and with this I have used my Cheery Lynn Spring Flower Doily Die and laid it in the middle of the first mount. I then wrapped a Halloween ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I have also used some orange card and the Cheery Lynn Pumpkin corner and then positioned it in the bottom left hand corner, in the top right I used the Memory Box Spider Corner and Spider which was cut from black card.
I then positioned my mounted image in the center and the sentiment pumpkins in the bottom right hand corner, I also stuck two pumpkin charms in the bottom left. To finish of I have used several different sized roses in the top left hand corner and stuck them to my card with silicone glue on punched out rose leaves.
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 very talented "A" Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this "Flowers Galore" Challenge.
