Pink Gem Challenges - Challenge #115 - Mothers Day, Birthday or Special Lady

Please can you scroll down for the ABC DT Challenge Card as its below this one.
Good Morning all my faithful followers, I have some fabulous news to pass on to you, I was asked by Janet of Pink Gem Designs if I would like to join one of her Design Teams and I was thrilled to say "Yes Please" and today is the launch of my first Challenge and I sincerely hope that you like the result.
And of course Pink Gem Designs is the sponsor of this Challenge and the theme this time is to create a card for either your "Mother, Birthday or for a Special Lady" in your life, unfortunately I lost my mum a few years ago so I made my card for a special friend instead, and here is my card.

And I even got my own watermark and that is another story, I had quite a job to sort that out, but now its as easy as anything. For my image I have used this gorgeous "Grace with a Rose" and you will find her here, I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a Marianne die to cut her out.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the first mount is a piece of pink card, the papers I have used are from Pink Gem Designs its Fleur to Lis design and unfortunately it does not look as if Janet has this in her shop anymore, I have used two of the papers a pink and lime green which I used a border punch from Tonic to punch the two sides and then laid it across the card then used a piece of pink ribbon and a piece of lace and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then placed in the middle of the card, and the sentiment is again one of the ticket stamps from Pink Gem Designs and you will find them here, I mounted it onto another piece of pink card and placed across the bottom right hand corner.
To finish of I have used several sized roses and placed them in the top left hand corner and these were attached to the card with silicone glue and I also used punched out rose leaves underneath the roses.
Now that you've seen my Card I do hope that you will now go and pay a visit to the Pink Gem Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Pink Design Team have created for you inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this "Mothers Day, Birthday, or Special Lady" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
