Stamping Sisters in Christ challenge GD meets Friday Sketchers

This week Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring the Stamping Sisters in Christ challenge and I am their Guest Designer! The challenge is to make a card for someone you love letting them know that God loves them. I have used the brilliant sketch at Friday Sketchers for my card although as my image is rather large you can only just see the corners of the central square of the sketch peeping out from behind the circle! The gorgeous papers are K&Co and I have teamed them with some gorgeous gold pearlescent card.
I have used the stunning "sending peace" image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I absolutely love this image it is so beautiful and I love colouring all the folds of her dress. I have coloured her with copics and the edges are distressed with antique linen distress ink.
The edges of the papers have been distressed with vintage photo distress ink and I have stamped a flourish from Stempelglede around the edges with Vintage Photo too. I'm loving this new swirl punch from EK success, it adds such an elegant touch. You can just see one of the corners in this photo peeping out behind the swirl.
The flowers have been made with EK success retro flower punches using the BP. I have added a gorgeous pearl brad to the centre of the largest flower and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts on the smaller flowers. The sentiment I made on the computer and used a Woodware circle punch for the sentiment mat.

Hope you like it and can join in the challenge, thanks for looking! x
