A Card for several Challenges

Good Afternoon All, I had a lovely surprise yesterday morning I had this gorgeous stamp arrive from a very sweet girl Moira Haynes and this image is "Dolly Pip". Ive stamped her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, then used a large oval Nestabilitie Die to cut her out, and then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been mounted onto another piece of red card.
This card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, the papers I have used is from the Kaisercrafts "Just Believe" paper pad, the first one is a cream background with swirls on the second is a check and the third a stripe. The card design is the one used for this fortnights Sugar Bowl Challenge and I have layered it up as the sketch shows.
I then positioned my mounted image in the center the sentiment down below it towards the right. To finish of I have used four poppies and some punched out holly leaves as again sketch requires.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

The first impression is the last impression"- so goes the saying. The growth of your business depends on the way you project and present yourself to your clients. A presentable business card does that trick for you. It speaks volumes,it will help every business including mine of Plastic card Printing .
