Challenge Card for LOV - Sketch by Bev Rochester

 Good Afternoon Ladies, Im so sorry Ive not been around for the last couple of days, weve been busy again and this morning we really went to town and dug up my once lovely bottlebrush plant, unfortunately it died in all that nasty cold and freezing weather we had during the winter months, so I swopped it for my hardy white fushia bush, I just hope that it survives being moved, as they arnt that easy to obtain.
Anyway I thought for a change I would create a card for the Lili of the Valley challenge, its the first time Ive done it, and I used this gorgeous image that my lovely friend Claire sent me in my blogcandy that I won about a month ago. Sorry Claire for taking so long before using it. Anyway I stamped it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens then cut it out with my circle Nestabilitie die and created a mount for it with some pink card and a circle Scalloped die to. The sentiment is one of Hero Arts this has been stamped and mounted onto a ribbon die cut.
The base card is 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of pink card and one of two papers from the Papermania Pink Parfait paper pack, a pretty all over flower pattern, the second piece is a pretty pink paper and I used the new Daisy Flower border punch along both the two edges. On top of this I popped a pink and white ribbon thats been threaded through the ribbon die cut and fixed to the back of the first layer.
The flowers were created from some of the left over paper and a dark pink/red paper from the same paper pack, these were stuck to the card on top of the leaf punch outs and on top of this Ive stuck some flower buttons which I have threaded some narrow ribbon through the holes and tied into bows. The last thing is the two heart gems stuck to the top on the right hand side. I also used some stickles on the winges, flowers and her tiara.

Good Afternoon Shirley

A nice sketch and a wonderful take on it, beautifully coloured image and the touches of glitter.

Thank you so much for the note and newsletter wich arrived today. I was going to mail you, but in true B style I can't find your addy.

Your daughter should be proud of her work, it takes a lot of organising to publish something like that, so send her my congratulations.

And the grandsons look adorable - probably not always angels like the picture though. But they are boys after all.

We've been out in the garden too for the last couple days, trying to get it ready for summer.

Hi Shirley
wow this is so pretty the papers you have picked all tie in so well with it all.
I am also moving and transplanting bushes and trees this month, not sure if its the right time but have lost so many things this harsh winter, some really large shrubs that I thought I would have forever, so its very disapointing.
hope your white fucia survives, hugs chris xx
