Challenge #67 - Bearlymine Designs - "Something Old and Something New"

Happy New Year to You All, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I want to wish you a wonderful New Year and to launch us into 2013 we have a fabulous Challenge for you its "Something Old and Something New" that means you must use something old from your stash and something new as well but I leave the choice upto you.
And the Sponsors for this Challenge are :-

 Im sorry Im not sure what the prizes are but I know they will be posted on our Challenge Blog so do pop by and visit and see for yourself.
For my card I chose to use a Marianne Stamp and here it is.

She is called "Vintage Girl" and it is a new stamp I bought for this Challenge and I have stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a circle die to cut her out, I then used a pink inkpad to distress around the edges. The mount I have used is one of the Marianne Decorative Dies and I have used some pink card for this, and the sentiment is one from my stash and I stamped this also onto a piece of white card and mounted it also onto a piece of pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount I have used pink card, and the papers are from Donna's Bearlymine "Floral Delights" digi paper set and you will find it here, I have used three different papers the first a pink rose paper then on top are a yellow and pink one and I used another of the Marianne Dies to cut them out, they are circles and these where interwoven and laid on top of the first paper. Then on top is a heart doily and wrapped around the middle is a piece of pink organza ribbon which has been attached to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then placed in the center with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of I have cut several of the Marianne leaf dies out and then with some different shades of roses created a floral spray in the top left hand corner and stuck them to the card with silicone glue.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Bearlymine 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 "Something Old and Something New" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
