Stampin' Write Markers and Basic Phrases and I create a Congratulations Card

Hi guys! I have been crafting, just not blogging! Oops! I do have a couple of cards to show you and a couple of scrapbook pages coming too! Here is the first card, I made it for my Godmothers daughter, who found out that she was accepted in to her chosen university degree this week! (congratulations Karina!)
I used a Whisper White card base, and layered it with some Old Olive designer series paper (from the Brights Stack), sponged the edges in Craft White Ink. I then layered some white ribbon, and Lucky Limeade ribbon on top. The main image panel is vellum, and has a GorJuss image, watercoloured with my Stampin' Write Markers and fussy cute her out. I stamped the sentiment from Basic Phrases in VersaMark and embossed it with White on some Pink Pirouette card stock and layered it (skewed) on some Pear Pizzazz card stock. A few pink rhinestones finishes off this card.
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the Ribbon Carousel Sketch challenge, I really really struggled with those skewed panels, but took inspiration from Design Team member Danielle Daws. The second challenge is the DYSU Patterned Paper Challenge and last but certainly not least is The Stamp Spot Back to School Challenge. Which, as this is going to a new student, I think is appropriate. 
Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Stamping :)
