ABC Challenges - "B is for Buttons and Bows"

Good Morning Crafters, over on ABC Challenge Blogspot we have reached the letter B and its for Buttons and Bows, so we what to see lots of both of them on your card please. And we are lucky to be sponsored by Janet Roberts of Pink Gem Designs.
Being as I am on the Pink Gem Design Team I was lucky enough to have many images to choose from and I chose this gorgeous "Jodie with a Heart" and you will find her here.

I printed her onto white card then used my and I then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a rectangle Nestabilitie Die to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and I had mounted this onto a blue mount and added two small bows through the lacy ends.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of blue card, and the papers are also from Pink Gem Designs and this one is titled "Cutie Pie" and you will find them here. I have used three papers a pink background with hearts on and the second is a blue one with hearts on and I have used a Martha Steward Heart border punch on the edges, and the last mount is a pink one exactly like the blue pattern with white hearts and this placed on a piece of blue card and mounted down the middle.
To finish of my card I have attached a blue bow to the end of Jodies pigtail and then placed four buttons down the left hand side.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the 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 "Buttons and Bows" challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
