PETUNIA PARADE NO 1

Hi all what a miserable day it is here in Gloucestershire, it is quite dull and dreary, oh and it is raining.  I thought I would help to try and cheer you (and me) up with this card that I made previewing just one of the new papers from BEARLY MINE DESIGNS that will be released this Friday 4th May.
This is an 8x8 card and I have used the colours of pink and green, the base paper is from Bearly Mine Micro Dots set, the second papers that I have used is one from the Petunia Parade set, I have mounted both papers onto pink card stock.
I have used my EK Success border punch for the bottom of each of the papers, I have also used a Marianne Butterfly Die cut and a Memory Box corner die cut. I have used two ribbons one of pink organza the second a green spotted ribbon, I made a double bow using the organza.  I have added pink and green gems and hat pins.
The stamped image I have not used for absolutely ages so I got her out and inked her up with Momento Black Tuxedo ink then coloured with Copics, I rounded off the corners then mounted her onto green card, finally I stamped a sentiment onto pink card stock and I think that is it.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Before I go I want to thank you all for visiting and the lovely comments you leave for me, I read each and everyone and I am so grateful for your continues support.
I will be back a little later to come visit, until then have a lovely day, hugs to all.
