Alisa's build a Card Challenge number 2

Hi there and welcome to my blog.
The very talented Alisa Tilsner has set a second build a card challenge for us.
Each day for 4 days this time she has given us some instructions.
Here they are

Instruction 1

We're going to work from the ground up this time. This round, I'll let you just position your layers and you can glue them down at the end.
1. Choose 2 colours to work with, and a DSP.
2. Create your card base, in portrait orientation, a top folding card will be best - you can choose to sponge around the card base if you like with matching ink.
3. Cut a Layer from your DSP and position it on your card base, your layer should be the same width as your card base, but not as tall.

Instruction 2

1. From your second colour of card, cut a tall rectangle layer and position it to the left hand side of your card. You may like to sponge the edges with matching ink.
2. From your first colour (same as your card base), cut a shorter, fatter rectangle than the second colour. Emboss this piece with your big shot and embossing folder. You may also like to sponge this with matching ink. Position this piece to the right of the card front.

Instruction 3 

1. At this stage, you will need to glue down your layers.
2. Tie a piece of ribbon or twine around the card front, knot to the right hand side of the card
3. Chose an image to stamp, colour and cut out.

Instruction 4 

1. Use dimensionals to adhere your stamped image to the card front.
2. Add any bling to your stamped image or card front.
3. Add a sentiment if you like ( my original didn't have one)

In the comments - Show us your finished card

I apologize for the picture quality of the instruction pics they were taken on my phone.
I have to add a sentiment as it doesn't look completed.

This one turned out really lovely
What do we all think of my new watermark??? Pretty nice hey?
