ABC Challenges - "O is for Open"

Good Morning Crafters, well again we have reached a new month and its only 4 months to Xmas I hope you have started those cards or you are going to find that rush at the end exhausting, luckily I started mine back in January so Im hope I wont need to make to many more but you never know I probably will find Im short when I come to write them up.
Todays Challenge over on ABC Challenge Blogspot is "O is for Open" and I guess this is a fancy way of saying its a Anything Goes one, and we have been lucky to have Connie Fong to sponsor us this time, and her images are just stunning

And I already had a few of her images and I chose to use this gorgeous one

She is called "Leilanie" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I used my Nestabilitie die to cut her out and used a fancy one for her mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and I have used a fancy one for the mount from the same die set as the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is of blue card and the papers are from Nitwits "Daffodil Joy" and I have used five papers from the set and layered them up as shown in the photo, I used a Martha Stewart border punch on two of the papers. I then placed my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment in the bottom left hand corner. And to finish of I have used nuvo blue in three of the corners.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope
will pay a visit to the  and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration in this "O is for Open" Challenge.
