Pretty in Blue for Mum

Here is my second post tonight.  I made this card for a dear friends Mother at her request. Her spec was blue, cute and flowers. Mmmh!! 

I used a sweet Sarah Kay image and coloured her with pro markers and Derwent artist's pencils, I've had her for ages n ages but this is her first outing so to speak. The papers are really old K &Co. (I've made myself a promise that I need to use the mountain of papers that I have before buying anymore, this was after I bought 4 12x12 K&Co packs at the weekend.!!!!!! 

I used DCWV for the mounts and this beautiful ribbon from Bazzil. EK scallop punch, suede flowers from Dovecarft, circle punch from xcut, scallops from Nestie's. Pearl stamens from WOC, button and heart charm from my stash, ferns from spellbinders foliage die and the sentiment was made using the computer.  I also used TH broken china distress ink for the clouds.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you enjoyed your stay and that you'll come back to see me soon.
