Sweet Blossom

Hi All!
Back today with my latest card using a lovely stamp image from Sylvia Zet's 'Wee Stamps' called 'Sweet Blossom'. I coloured this little fairy and her pet mouse (at least I think it's a mouse!) in with my Promarkers  and tried to get a soft feel to the colour scheme.

The papers I used were from Kaisercraft's 'Sweet Admirer' collection. I cut into one sheet and rearranged the flower pattern where I wanted it to be and then stuck it back together and layered it up on  pinky peach, white and silver card.

For embellishment I added lace, a heart shaped charm and some punched flowers with pearl centres. I decided on a general 'love' theme that could apply to a female family member or simply to a friend, and cut the word 'love' from the papers, layering it up and adding Glossy Accents. I then used a similar sentiment to decorate inside.

A Sylvia Zet fairy stamp would not be complete without a bit of Stickles so I added that too!

Anyway, hope you like my card. I'd like to enter it in the following challenges:
Graph It - Floral/Love
Sparkles Monthly - Ribbon/Lace, Hearts and Pearls (I used lace, pearls and a heart charm)
Whimsy Challenge - Love is in the Air
Passion for Promarkers - Have a Heart (Heart charm and love theme)
Papertake Weekly - With a Heart

Thanks for looking!
Bye for now
