One Sweet Challenge - May 2013

There is another challenge over at the One Sweet Challenge and the topic for May is to "create a card using spring colours".  It's a good few years since I fell in love with Sweet Pea Stamps.  When I first started using them they were only available in rubber but a great deal of images are now available in digital format which is brilliant for people like me living in the UK and am too inpatient to wait for the post to come.  I am really lucky to be on the Sweet Pea Stampers Design Team as I love to use these images.

For my card I have used the Sweet pea Stamps digital image by Karen Middleton called "Magenta Rose".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and coloured the roses with pink Sakura Stardust pen.  It's lovely and sparkly but a nightmare for the camera flash!!!
  
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Petunia Parade and Bearly Mine Designs The Boys Zone.  I have inked around a doily with a See D's fern effect stamp and a Versamagic ink pad.  I have finished the card off with some raffia ribbon, foam die-cut flowers and butterfly which I have added Papermania Glitterations to, satin ribbon, pearls and Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
