Card for the Charity Stall

I recently won a Digital Tuesday Challenge and my prize was three Stitchy Bear Stamps that I could pick myself.  Well, what a time I had as there were so many wonderful creations.  In the end I went for one stamp called Edward and Bella.  It didn't mean anything to me as I know nothing about Twilight but I have some Forum friends who LOVE TWILIGHT so I thought I'd give this stamp a go as it might sell well for the charity stall.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and highlighted areas with the Sakura Stardust clear pen to make areas glittery/sparkly.  The background paper which I cut into patchwork pieces was my own design as this is the topic this week on the Passion for Promarkers Challenge Blog  - to design a backing paper made solely with the Promarkers.  I used black and ice grey 2 to make the paper with a mixture of dots, zig-zags and thick lines.  I have finished off the card with some stamped flowers with ice grey brads in the centre, ribbon/flower/bow/pearl embellishment from my stash, some buttons, some card candy and a ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann's Digi Store (there are some on the sheet with words and some not, so one with no words I put on "Have a Twilight-y Happy Birthday").  I'm sure those of you who are Twilight fans will tell me whether I've got it right or not!!!
