Pretty in Pink

I love the layout of this card I made it following this weeks MTSC 77 Sketch,adapting it to suit my needs. If you haven't tried following a sketch before,I would certainly recommend you give it a go,it makes you try out different layouts and ways of putting cards together. There are loads of challenge blogs around giving you lots of sketches to choose from.

My lovely Sugar Nellie Coffee time stamp has only been inked up and used a couple of times so I thought I'd bring her out to make this card for my eldest Niece. I stamped her using Tuxedo black ink and coloured her using Copics. The flower paper is by Dovecraft and the flowers were made using a selection of flower punches adding self adhesive stones to the centres which I also coloured using Copics.
I'm also entering this card for the following challenges:-
A Spoonfull of Sugar challenge 107 to use flowers,
Tuesday Taggers challenge All that blooms,
I'm off tomorrow and am going to do one of my least favourite things,clothes shopping! I'll probably end up doing what I usually do and come home with only craft goodies! (Well I have to console myself somehow)
See you tomorrow,if I'm not too tired from the shopping,
Thanks for stopping by,
