Adorable Hope + Challenges

Hello My Dears,  I hope you are all having a lovely weekend,  I've been in and out of the garden most of the day, tidying up and planting up my borders,  I came indoors to ease the aches and pains in these aged bones and have managed to create this sweet card for a few challenges. 

I used the beautiful image  Hope from Sugar Nellie and coloured her with my Pro markers.  Isn't she adorable.  My papers are from first edition, love letters, my pink Jute ribbon border is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and my flower is hand made with crinoline, pink netting and pink organza.  I followed the tutorial over at Linda (the funky junkie) where I also purchased my crinoline and vintage binding that the bow is made of.  The full recipe for my card is below this post.

The challenges I am entering are:

The Sugar Bowl:  I have followed the lovely sketch from Kiki and the theme is Think Pink.
A Spoon full of Sugar:  would like you to use Ribbon,Pearls,Flowers this week.
2 Sisters:  Would like to see you make your own embellishments this week.
Paperplay: Would like to see distressing
I Love Promarkers:  Would like you to go Dotty this week
Pear Tree Designs:  Have the theme of Birthday this week
Cupcake Craft:  Would like to see Monochromatic this week
