Challenges

Creative Card Crew - Swirls/Pearls
Passion For Promarkers (156) - Sketch
Crafty Ribbons (23) - Photo Inspiration
Stamp With Fun (169) - Favourite Stamps

I have so many stamps that are my favourites so it is very hard to pick just one.  Some of my favourites however are the 'Simply Adorables' by Sugar Nellie.  I love the way this one (Hope) looks deep in thought and she is a dream to colour.  As usual I have coloured her with my trusty promarkers and distressed with chalks before cutting and layering with nesties.  Following the great sketch I have added panels to the base card adding a punched border to one.  I have also used these fabby papers from Nitwits called 'Stuffed With Love', aren't they just gorgeous?  The swirl is die-cut while the flowers are punched.  A sentiment, bow and a few pearls finishes the card off nicely.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
