A Card for the ArtbyMiran Facebook Challenge

Good Morning Crafters I know I dont post many posts these days I do find that I seem to have lots to do running my other blog but as I had already made this card for this months progressive Challenge over on Facebook I thought I would treat you to seeing it as well.
This image is the one they give you free if you have taken part in last months progressive Challenge and I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens. I then cut her out using the Justrite dies and used the larger one for the mount out of pink card. I always ink around the edges before removing the die to give it more body or it looks rather lost if you leave it all white. The sentiment was stamped and for this one I used for the smaller die a Sue Wilson Noble die and for the mount the circle die from Justrite.
I do love Justrite stamps and Dies also Sue Wilsons dies and stamps Im a bit of a horder of both so dont be surprised it you dont get to see me use them more.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount out of pink card the papers I used this time are also from ArtbyMiran and these are called "Happy Days" I printed three papers, the first is a pink background with hearts on, the second is a blue one and this one I have used border and corner dies from Martha stewart, the third is pink background with white spots and this was cut into a strip and mounted on a piece of pink card, then layered up as shown in the photo. I also used a heart doily which I tucked behind the mounted image.
I then placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. I have a confession to make I accidently bent the side of the heart doily when I turned it over to stick to the black base card and to try and anchor it down I used a bit of glue, unfortunately it looked so dark against the white I had to cover it up and I used a pink and blue organza ribbon to create the two bows and then placed a bow around the knot with the glitter drops from Tonic, I also used them in three of the corners. At least it covered up the black gluey mark.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
