ABC Challenges - "G is for Girl"

Good Morning Crafters, as promised last week I said that I have something special to tell you and that is that I have been invited to join ABC Challenges Design Team and I was not only thrilled to be asked by Nikki but also delighted to say yes, so today is my first Challenge with them and this time the theme is :-

"G is for Girl"

And joy of joy for this one we are being sponsored by Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter, please pay them a visit here:-

And we were lucky to be given a choice of several images to play with, and as I havent used this one before I decided it was the right time to use it.

This image is "Angel" and you will find her here, and I printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a Oval Nestabilitie Die to cut her out, and the mount is a Marianne Die and I used pink Pearlescent card for this. The sentiment is one from my stash and I then used a La La Land banner die to cut it out and mounted it onto pink card to.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the paper I have used is from the set as the image and you will find it here, then on top I have used two ribbons which have been wrapped around the middle and stuck to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was placed in the center and two swirls which also came with the mount stuck in the two opposite corners of the mount. I placed the sentiment across the bottom right hand corner, and stuck six pearls in the top right and bottom left hand corners. And to finish of I have used several roses in different sizes in pink in the top left hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the ABC Challenges Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of a very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "G for Girl" Challenge.
