I had this image sitting around all coloured in and decided this was the opportunity to use it on something! This sketch is Karen Giron's SSSC#76 and is a great one - I would rather make rectangular cards but did not want to cut down this image any more. It is one from Flourishes - I just love sweet peas - rarely see them these days but can still remember the beautiful perfume and colours of Mum's all those years ago.
Originally I had Stampin' Up! Blush Blossom as the base card but decided it was too insipid so have used Pale Plum instead. With all the ribbon I have in my stash, this was the only colour that went anywhere near the flower colours but not the sort of ribbon I had in mind! I have coloured the flowers with Prismacolor pencils and blending stump. Other card colours used are Whisper White and Kraft. The wording comes from a little SU set that was given to me and the pearls are from Kaisercraft. I have used a bit of glitter on the flowers too.
