Sweet Stampin GDT Sketch card

Hi folks! Well, it's my last week over on Sweet Stampin as their GDT for this month and I have to admit that they saved the best challenge until last. It's a sketch! I had so much fun making this card. Seems like I have missed using sketches.
I used DCWV patterned papers and wrapped around some self adhesive lace. I used my Nellie Snellen oval die set to cut the oval plate. I threaded some ribbon through and wrapped that around too. I die cut the letters, ampersand and decorative corners with my Cuttlebug. The large scalloped oval is a Nestability die cut which I embossed and stamped the swirls onto. The cute little characters are by Lili-of-the-Valley, I painted them with watercolours and Pearlidoodles. I cut them out and adhered them to the scalloped oval with dimensional glue gel. I made the little flowers using my Woodware punches, shaped them and inked the edges. I glued them in place with the gel and added self adhesive pearls to the centres. The last finishing touch was to add a couple of wire tendrils to the flower arrangements.
Have a great weekend.
Ciao for now!

Wow! This is gorgeous! I love the really elegant overall look to your card with that adorable image. I haven't been to your blog before and having looked back through some of your work, I'll be sure to come by again. Your easter cards are superb. I especially like the eggs in stands. Soooo different and stunning! Warmest wishes, Lesley

I was wondering the best way to make this stamp come alive, and you have just shown me Sandra. What a beautiful card, I might just have to 'borrow' your inspiration and create something similar for a wedding I have coming up. I love the small touches of colours. This is stunning.

Another stunner I have this stamp but am ashamed to say It is still waiting to be inked As always you've coloured it beautifully and the roses backing paper sets it off to perfection
