Whiff of Joy Challenge - A Sketch by Jane

Hi Girls, its windy here and raining, what a lovely weekend not one you can sit on the patio is it? Anyway my card today is created for the Whiff of Joy Challenge a sketch by Jane, I dont often enter this challenge but I do like the sketch and thought Id give it a go.
Ive used this lovely image and coloured it with my copic pens and promarkers so they both got an airing for this image. After this I actually had to use a template that would cover both of the characters, then created a mount for it out of red card, the sentiment is one of Whiff of Joys own and this was mounted in the same way on red card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of dark red card, and one of two papers from the new Henbury Lane paper pack from Papermania, Ive fallen in love with these papers but unfortunately you only get one paper of each pattern which does mean that you have to certain about using it. Anyway this first layer is a pretty pink one with a paler flower pattern all over it, the second paper is just a strip and Ive used one of my MS border punches on it. This has then been stuck to the base layer and a ribbon has been placed on top and fixed to the back of the first layer.
The image was then stuck to the left hand side and the sentiment to the bottom on the right. Ive then used my templates to create the flourishes at the top and some red gems were then stuck on the marks. To finish of Ive used another of my homemade lace flowers and stuck it on top of some punched out leaves.
