Sarah Kay Sister Card - Also for a Sketch Challenge


Good afternoon - isn't the weather gorgeous - hope it lasts. My little one is outside in the park with his dad at the mo, making the most of it.
This pretty card was made using a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
When I finished colouring this Sarah Kay image, I realised it would make a lovely sister card. I have used pro markers to colour the image. I then highlighted parts of the image with clear fine glitter. The backing papers are Basic Grey "Oh Baby" range. I have used a pink flower from my stash, a gold flower, and little closed rosebuds. On the pink flower, I have added the tiniest green gems to the petals. I have punched the leaves and inked the edges with green ink. The sentiment is hand stamped and both the sentiment and image have been inked around the edges with brown ink. This is all finished off with 3 green gems on the image and pretty pink ribbon mounted onto lace. Hope you like and thanks for looking. :0)
I am entering this card into the following sketches:-
