Whoopsy Daisy!!

I've had this image for a while and have been itching to use it on a card, and finally managed to do so today!! Isn't she gorgeous? She is a digi download from Whoopsy Daisy Designs.
She is coloured with Promarkers and then I decided to use textures (rather than colour,) so that she wasn't 'lost' amongst a sea of colour.....I wanted her to be the focal point of the card and to stand out.

 I used my 'swirls' embossing folder and cut the embossed piece of card into 3 panels and attached with foam tape to give depth. Then I attached a wide piece of lace vertically down the centre....(I think you can make it out in the photos...?)  I mounted her on some embossed pearlescent paper and onto another panel of embossed card, attached with foam tape. I added some 3D butterflies, a large white feather, some white pearl gems and a sentiment in silver to complete. The only extra colour is some inking to the edges to enhance the depth. 

As you can see, it is a birthday card for my mum (in-law.)
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #102 'Purple & Silver' (the image on the card is purple and the sentiments are in silver.)
I Love Promarkers #33 'White on White' (I hope this counts....although there is a sneaky bit of lilac showing behind the panels....?)
A Pocket Full of Posies challenge #7 'Lavender & Lace'
Colour Create challenge #54 'All White' (again, hope this counts...)
Incy Wincy Designs challenge #60 'All White Except the Image.'

Thanks for stopping by......

Big Smiles, Ali x
