A Card for ArtbyMiran Progressive Challenge

Good Morning Crafters sorry I havent posted since the beginning of the month, this poor blog gets forgotten as I do run my No.1 blog more or less upto date though even that isnt as busy as it used to be, maybe Im getting to old for this but will keep updating as and when I can.
This months progressive Challenge is using this little lady from ArtbyMiran and I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her. Afterwards I cut her out using a rectangle die from Nestabilities and a Snowflake one for the mount.
The backing paper is also from ArtbyMiran and its called "Winter Frost, I have used two papers and the first one is a darker one than the second and this was cut into a square and then punched on all four sides with a Martha Stewart Border and Corner punch. I then layered them up as shown and a ribbon was bound around the card and attached to the back.
The mounted image was placed towards the left and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of I have punched some snowflakes out and placed them down the right hand side of the card.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge - October

Good Morning Crafters, well where did September go can you believe its disappeared so quickly and we are inching so close to Xmas and New Year, although I love the colours of Autumn I must admit I hate really hate Winter and the dark nights, they depress me no end, but I suppose thats me and and perhaps you prefer Winter I just love light and not the dark.
Well can you believe it I had better stop before I depress you as well and this is a new Challenge over on Crazy Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge Blogspot and here is the card I created for it.

I adore Orchids and have quite a number of the Moth Orchid and at the moment I even have one in flower

Its a beautiful two tone pink flower, the white one next door is a bit sick unfortunately the plant got a bit over watered and it seems to caused it not to open completely which is a shame.
The card was creating using not only the Heartfelt Botanic Orchid papers, but also the dies and I stamped the flowers onto card, coloured them and then cut them out with the dies and shaped them with my embossing tool to create depth.
Even the border die down the left side is another Heartfelt Die and slipped behind the mounted image, I have also used a square doilies to to try and cover up the fact that I didnt quite have a big enough piece of paper for my first layer.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper 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 Patterned Paper Challenge.
