A Card for the ArtbyMiran Facebook Challenge

Good Afternoon Crafters, I know Im extremely lax as posting cards here on my No.2 blog this is because its been rather busy over on my No.1 blog, weve have a blog hop and a about 3 other challenges to write up and schedule, plus which I have been trying to get ahead for a couple of months of DT work due to the fact Im due to have a cataract removed on the 29th of the Month and Im not sure how much Im going to be able to achieve while Im waiting for my new glasses so I do hope you understand my delay in posting a card.
This card was created for the ArtbyMiran Facebook page and this is one of her gorgeous Autumn images and I have printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I cut her out with a rectangle Nestabilitie daie and used a fancy one for the mount out of green card, the sentiment was created in the same way and the die is also from the same die set as the mount for the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of green card and the papers are also from ArtbyMiran this is the Christmas paper set, and I have used three of the papers, the first is a green one and on top I have used two of the papers and a holly border punch down the edges. I then wrapped a red holly ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I placed my mounted image towards the left with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, to finish of I have used a piece of red ribbon tied in a bow on top of some punched out holly leaves and some holly berries which were then placed in the top right hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge No.6

Good Morning Crafters, can you believe we are almost onto Christmas its only 4 weeks away I hope that youve have all your Xmas cards ready to post as Im sure it will be hectic at the Post Office during the next few weeks, I always get mine in the post early so that we dont get caught up in the queues in the Post Office.
Anyway this is the last Challenge for 2015 and as its almost Christmas I thought I would post a Card for the season, but first I want to thank Hazel for allowing me to join her Design Team and to wish her and her hubby a lovely Christmas and the rest of the girls on the Design Team.

And now for the Card

This beautiful image is from the "Sparkling Poinsettia" Design set, I stamped it and coloured it with my copic pens, then cut it out with Nestabilitie Labels Die No.1 and a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of red card, and the paper is also from the same design set and the image "Sparkling Poinsettia" and I laid it on top of the first mount and I used a punch on each of the corners.
I then placed my mounted image in the center and put red pearls in all the four corners just to finish it of.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pay a visit to the Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this months "Anything Goes with Patterned Paper" Challenge.
