Sir Stampalot Challenge and Blog Hop

Hello everyone,
Well this is very last minute isn't it.  There was a blog hop and challenge over at Floral Fantasies with some very special prizes.  Well I did the blog hop no problem and said I would be back with a card for the challenge.  Now the challenge and blog hop close tonight at midnight GMT and I have finally made my card.  The theme was "Moving" because Sir Stampalot - the sponsor for this challenge - have moved premises. (Sir Stampalot even has a blogsite which you can see by clicking here).  Now the card didn't have to be about moving house or moving premises it could be anything to do with moving/movement.  I decided to go for a swing card and used an image which I downloaded from Craftsuprint - they have THE largest selection of downloadable craft sheets for all sorts of projects.  If you've never visited then you really should.
So without further ado, here is the card I made, firstly one side:
and then from the other side:
I added some blue ribbon at either side of the image and this follows on around both sides of the card.  I added  a bow to the middle of the card just for some added interest and then added three blue gems at the top left and bottom right of the plain side of the card.
The cat image is decoupaged (the sheet comes with three images in order to do this) and I have taken a side view so that you can see that more clearly.
This card will also fit the challenge over at Bizzy Becs - Creatalicious challenge where you weren't allowed to use any stamped images.
So, I'm off now to do another couple of cards for a couple of other challenges - hopefully not so much of a rush!!
