ABC Challenges - "O is for Orange"

Good Morning Fellow Crafters, well todays Challenge over on ABC Challenge Blogspot is all about "O is for Orange" a really bright cheerful colour that should cheer us all up, and this time we are being sponsored by "Stamp and Create" and Im sure they are offering a fabulous prize for the winner.

For my card I used this gorgeous image.

Isnt she so pretty she is called "Lizzy with a Gift" and you will find her here, and I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a Tonic basic die to cut her out and a scalloped one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of orange card, the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppes "Oh my Darling" paper set and I have used three papers, the first a orange background with roses on, and the second a orange and white spot and the third a check which were placed as shown.
I then placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner which was mounted in the same way as the image but with circle dies and not oval. To finish of I have used several sized roses in the top left hand corner which were placed on silicone glue and then I placed rose leaves down the edges before sticking the roses on top. The final flourish are the pearls of several sizes placed down the right hand side at the top and the bottom on the left.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to ABC 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 "O is for Orange" Challenge.
