Challenge #63 - Bearlymine Designs - "Blue and Silver"

Good Morning All, well the rain has stopped at the moment but for how long Ive no idea, its been so wet here in my neck of the woods and we've had lots of floods plus loads of trees and fences down, its a right mess where ever you go around the Forest, but I'm going to try and bring a bit of sunshine into your lives as for this Challenge this week we want yet another Christmas one its a "Blue and Silver" theme for your cards.
But first before I go any further I want to introduce you to a new Design Team member we've had join us and that is Chanelle and I do hope that you will go and visit her blog and leave her some love and welcome her to the Team. And now to let you know who's sponsoring us this week and that is Marianne Dies, and at the moment Im not sure what their prize is but Im sure we shall know by the time this Challenge goes live.

And they are offering a prize of


And now without any further ado, here is the card I created for this Challenge.

I chose this gorgeous "Don and Daisy" image and stamped onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, then used a oval die to cut her out, I used some blue ink just to distress the edges, and then used a Decorative Oval from Marianne for the mount, and the sentiment is a Britannia die and I used more of the same silver mirri card for this.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of silver card and the papers I used are from Donna's "Pastel Christmas" digi papers set, and you will find them here. The first one Ive used is a blue background with snowflakes on, and then on top I used another pattern and a Decorative Square Marianne die to cut out a large doily which I have placed in the middle of the base card, then wrapped a organza ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then placed my mounted image in the center and the sentiment across the right hand bottom corner, and to finish of I have used the Nellie Poinsetta Punches to create the flowers in the top left hand corner, I then moulded them into shape and stuck them down with some silicone glue.
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 Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Blue and Silver" Challenge.
