Friday Sketcher's challenge

Afternoon!! Firstly I apologise for not doing my usual visits to your blogs but I have been and still am really, really busy with lots of behind the scenes DT work so am having to do minimum blogging! It's also my daughter's birthday on Saturday so I'm trying to make a really special card for her and failing miserably LOL! This card is one of the cards for a collection I'm working on using the Whiff of Joy store stamp kit and some stunning Bo Bunny papers from the Kitchen Spice collection. I have followed the gorgeous sketch at Friday Sketcher's challenge - thanks Jacque! - so thought I'd better show you it before it is too late to enter!
I have coloured this gorgeous image with distress inks. I love her shoes with the ballet style ties don't you!? I mixed the blue myself to match the blue of the papers.
The punched flowers have been punched using EK success punches and the rest are from the Hobby House, as are the brads. I hvae added some leaves punched with a Woodware punch.

The gorgeous blue ribbon is from the Hobby House too and the butterflies have been punched with my new MS butterfly punch and covered in stickles. The lovely amber coloured gems are from the Hobby House also.

The sentiment "Bouquets of wishes" comes with the store stamp kit and I have stamped it with Tea Dye distress ink. Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Hi Jane : very pretty card and not seen this image coloured before. It all ties together really well and I love the sentiment too. There's something about a bouquet of flowers that's quite magical - this one reminds me of one of those hand-tied bouquets! I'll hop over to Friday Sketchers and get the sketch now!!
