Eyes Down, Look In!! - Crafty Ribbons DT Card

Hi all,
Well, Thursday rolls around once more and that means a new challenge over at Crafty Ribbons.  Thanks for all your fabulous entries into our Ribbon and Lace challenge, boy did I have a hard time choosing just three from that lot!! LOL  Anyway, pop over to the challenge blog and have a look who I chose as my top 3 and who Mr Random Org picked as his winner!
So onto our new challenge:
I am sure most of you will know the drill with this one but just in case you don't here's how it works.
Look at the grid below and choose a line, vertical, horizontal or diagonal and make sure you include those elements on your project.  You could of course go the whole hog and use everything but you don't have to!
Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is:
and this is the gorgeous prize:
So onto my card then.
 I did actually choose to use everything!
Here you go:
The image is Jelly Pip from Sugar Nellie and she is coloured with Promarkers. I added some glitter to her waistcoat and used glitter brads on the die cut. She is mounted on to one of my fabulous Die Cuts from Susie's Die Cut Dreams Shop (which will be open again very very soon - look out for further details on my blog soon).  The die cut was a pale pink so I used a bright pink ink pad to change the colour. 
The flower and the leaf are handmade following a tutorial at Crafty Ribbons.  Why not stop by and have a look, there are some fab tutorials there. 
The pink polka dot ribbon is from ... yes you guessed it... Crafty Ribbons, one I've had for a while. 
The roses are from my stash.  The punched leaves are inked and clear embossed.  The background paper is embossed and I have brushed it with pink Perfect Pearls. 
The die cut ticket sentiment is from Lynne at Sentiments 4 You and I have added some little green gems to that.  The lace down the left hand side is from Linda The Funkie Junkie's Etsy shop.  The pink button is from my stash.
So there you go then, I think I got everything on the grid, but as I said you don't have to. 
So please try and find the time to enter the challenge - I mean you wouldn't want to miss out on all those fabby flowers now would you.
Back later to add some challenges.
