Joan's Touch challenge lady

Good Evening Ladies,
I have been in a creative slump lately. I didn't realize how much Joan's challenges kept my juices flowing. I also have realized how much those challenges kept me in touch with the other challenge takers. I do dearly miss it. So when I saw that Joan had a challenge for us I was so excited. http://joanstouch.blogspot.com/2014/02/challenge-for-this-week.html This will certainly fill the gap until Terri starts the challenges back at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/
 Joan's Touch challenge  lady
So the requirements for this weeks challenge are as follows...
Use pink
Use black
Use a lady
Use a bow
Use something that can be purchased at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/
So without further ado here is my card...
I decided on hot pink for my pink. Just seemed to be a bright and happy color to brighten up the dreary winter we are still having. I chose my lady first. Of course she has a dog with her. The image is from Great Impressions. I colorized the image with Prisma pencil, gamsol, and Copic markers. She was then hand cut. I then decided that she needed to be presented on a die-cut. So I grabbed for an old favorite I purchased at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/  The die is from Cheery Lynn and is number DL103 Italian Flourish. Black cardstock backs this doily die. I layered pink check under the black. I created my bow with sheer polka dotted ribbon. This bow has several loops. I learned how to make these bows in grooming school. It has come in handy for card making also. To the bottom of the card I added roses that I created with a Sizzix rolled rose die. A black pearl sprig peaks out from behind the roses.
A close-up of my lady. The inside sentiment reads Get Well Soon so I can harass you in person again. This sentiment is from River City Rubber.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
