ABC Challenges - "X is for Xtra Special"

Good Morning Crafters, well would you believe it we are already half way through November and only 6 weeks to Xmas hasnt this year flown by, I cannot believe that in a couple of weeks it will be my 72nd Birthday I think as you get older the year must get shorter. Anyway this fortnights Challenge over on ABC Challenge Blogspot is all about the letter "X" and this is for someone Extra Special in your life.
For this Challenge we are being sponsored by

As I already had several images of my own I decided to use this one.

Her name is "Delores D'ammage" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her and afterwards used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.8 to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount out of yellow card, the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppes "A Fresh Start" digi paper set and I used one paper for the background and two for the mounts, the first is a dark orange yellow and then on top is a more citric yellow, I then placed a sheet of spiderweb across the whole card and placed my mounted image in the middle towards the top. The sentiment is one form my stash and this was cut out with a Heartfelt label die and placed in the bottom right hand corner.
To finish of I have used several of the left over papers and a few different punches to create the flowers that you see in the top left hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop over to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for this "X is for Xtra Special" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
