Sweetie search - My Entry

Well after checking all of the challenges I usually enter, I spotted the post for the sweetie search and I must say I do fancy the job so here is my take on the sketch.  I do hope you enjoy looking at my card and good luck to everyone else who enters.

My biggest challenge for this card was to decide which image I should use (as I do have a few Stamps to chose from) and I finally decided to use "First Dance" part of the Home Grown collection and can be found here (Home Grown Collection - First Dance).

All the card used in this project is Stardream Card in Cream and gold.  I have made an easel card which is 14.5cm square.

The image was stamped with memento ink and has been coloured in with promarkers using Cool grey 5, cool grey 3, Cocoa, Black, Pastel Pink, Ivory and Blush.  Cuttlebug embossing folders used are Swiss Dots and Roses.

The flowers I have used are ones that have been hand made by me as I could not get the colours I wanted.  These flowers were coloured using the spice marmalade distress ink.  If you would like to make these flowers yourself please see the link on my sidebar for the flower tutorial.

The sentiment used is from The Greeting Farm and is included on their wedding set which I also think is called Happily Ever After.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for any comments you may like to leave.

Happy Crafting
