MY BESTIES INTERNATIONAL CHALLENGE #18

Hi all, sorry that I am a bit late posting my Bestie DT card just haven't felt well this weekend, not really with it but I hope that it is worth waiting for.
Our theme for the next 2 weeks is
I have gone all out and used all three items for my card.

We would love to see you use a Bestie image and join us in our challenge.
Here is my card which features an image
ROSEBUD
I will find the link for her and let you know where you can get her
I have really gone to town on this card but I must admit I am truly inspired by these beautiful images, I coloured Rosebud with Graph It Markers, then rounded off the edges and mounted her onto black card stock, the LOTV papers have all been mounted onto black card stock, I used one of my border punches on one of the black card stock layers and added white ric rac ribbon, I have also added spotty ribbon, doily and some black lace, there is a mixture of gold organza ribbon flowers and resin flowers I also added some gold gems and a light coloured gem dazzler and finally a butterfly.
Here are a few more pictures showing my card at different levels



I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
If I have got anything incorrect in this post please forgive me I think my head is another world all together.
I would like to send everyone a heartfelt thank you for visiting me and leaving me such wonderful comments, I hope to be around later today to see you until then have a lovely day

MY BESTIES INTERNATIONAL CHALLENGE REMINDER

Hi all hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday, if you are having one, as normal it is raining here in Gloucester they have even given out a 'Yellow' alert for flooding, and it gets worse, I lost my internet connection yesterday and my TV broke down.
But what saved my sanity was the joy of being able to do some extra crafting and colouring of some beautiful images.  Talking of beautiful images I have this one to show you today, I really wanted to make a card for the current My Besties International Challenge which is actually being hosted by Team A, I am on Team B, it was such an awesome honor to get involved and be able to do a reminder/inspirational post for FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO and this is what I created.
I have used an image called CUPCAKES and she is available HERE, she is new to me and I coloured her with Graph It Markers I then rounded off the edges and mounted onto pink card, I have added loads of pearls some, pink bows with diamante gems, buttons, butterflies, die cut flower and a sentiment. 
The papers are from my stash that I have had for simply ages, the doily die cut in the centre was actually sent to me by my blogging buddy Chris a very long time ago, she sent me quite a few of them, I have finally taken the plunge and this is the first one that I have used, I hate using stuff that I know I will never be able to replace, but I thought this was the perfect time to use this one as my all time favourite colour is Brown with Pink or actually any other colour but mainly pink.
A closer look at Cupcakes 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I hope that you will come join the challenge please pop over and check out the DT's fantastic creations they are awesome.
I would also like to thank everyone who has visited me over the weekend and that have left me a comment on my previous posts, I was wonderfully surprised when I finally got into my e-mail to find so many, I have yet to read them but please believe me I will and I will also be visiting later but I just needed to thank you all so much for your support and encouragement it means a lot to me.
