Challenge #188 - "Your Favourite Colour Combo" - Pink Gem Designs Challenge

Good Morning Gemsters, I really dont know where the time flies to, before you know it we are half way through another month and its time for the Pink Teams turn to host a Challenge and this time we want to see "Your Favourite Colour Combo" and of course for me its "Purple and Pink" and I am so lucky to have a choice of Janets beautiful images to play with, but first you will want to know who our sponsor is and that is Janet Roberts of Pink Gem Designs you really should pay a visit to her website to see her beautiful images, papers and printables as she has some fabulous designs to fit any occasion.


And here is the Card I created for this Challenge:-

This little lady is "Grace with Teddy" and you will find her here. I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used my Nestabilitie die to cut it out and a fancy one for the mount our of mauve card. The sentiment is one from my stash and I have also mounted this onto a fancy die from the same die set.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is out of mauve card and the papers are also from Pink Gem Designs and this one is "Small Daisies" and you will find them here. I have used sever of the papers and my Martha Steward border punch down the edges of the layers, and then I used a mauve ribbon down the card on the left hand side.
I then used a circle doily and placed this towards the top and my mounted image on top with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. I then used the Sue Wilson Cape Daisy die to create the three daisies in the bottom left hand corner, I used some of the paper left overs to create them. To finish of I have used Nuvo pearl drops in the top right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pay a visit to the Pink Gem Designs 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 our "Your Favourite Colour Combo" Challenge.

The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card, the paper as I said is also from "Snowborder Girl" and came separately to the image so I printed it onto paper and stuck it to the blue mount and used glitter on the snow to give it a bit of sparkle.
