ABC Challenge - "Q is for Quote"

This is the first of my pre scheduled cards as at the moment I have my grandsons staying and I am unable to get to my desktop computer so have to write this up well in advance of the Challenge, so if you find any mistakes I can only apologise and correct them once I have regained my craft room from the 3rd.
Anyway another month has flown by and over at ABC Challenge Blogspot we have reached the letter "Q" and this time we want to see "Q is for Quote" so do please make sure you have one on your card.
And this time we are being sponsored by Sherri Baldy

and she is offering a fabulous prize of

And we were lucky enough to be offered several images to play with, but I chose to use one from my stash.

This little sweetie is called "Dafodilly" and you will find her here, I have pritned her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens before cutting her out with my Wild Rose Die. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was then stamped onto white card and mounted onto a piece of the pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and the papers I have chosen to use are from Sweetshoppes "Friends Forever" digi paper set, and I have used three papers, the first is a pink background with bows on and the second is a floural one and the third a green leaf pattern on it. I have mounted them as shown.
I then placed my mounted image towards the left and placed my sentiment in the bottom right hand corner, and the final flourish is the gem swirl thats been placed down the right handside.
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 take part in is "Q is for Quote" Challenge.
