A card for many challenges


There are so many challenges I wanted to enter this week and also to use an image that has been kicking about my craft room for months. She is so pretty and I just had to make the right kind of card to fit the image. The reaason she was kicking about for so long, was that I could not get her to fit in with any papers and card or design I had done. She just seemed to look odd. Anyway not being beaten I've had another go and came up with this result. I used a little more patience this time (it took almost a whole day to get the look I  wanted) and gave her a sort of modern Vintage look.
I found a lovely piece of pink card with a gold pattern and layered it up with Mirror card and some swirly patterned scrap paper. The papers were quite strong with patterns so I did not want to put too much bling on and overdo the card. I added some gorgeous thick lace, hearts, dragonflies ,pearls and some ribbon. I finished it off with a lovely sentiment and a couple of brads.
I was really pleased with the finished card and it will be kept for someone who is having a special celebration.
Here is a list of the challenges I entered :-
