I'M IN THE MOOD FOR SWEET PEAS

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE
I hope all the mums out there are being pampered and enjoying their day...
This afternoon, I spent some time and money at my favourite craft store
and bought some gorgeous craft stash but I really need to show you ,so I will make a video at the end of the week.
But what I will show you is a card I whipped up this afternoon and I just love the pattern paper from Kaisercraft, and I couldn't resist using it.
And here is Caron Vinson's Blue Fairy stamp from Sweet Pea  that I bought and I coloured her in black and white. I used 4 techniques in colouring: pencils with baby oil, copics, black led pencil and black liner pen. 
I have yet to master these techniques but I will in time. (I hope)
Here' s another look..
The patterned paper with foil swirls and flowers,  really make the card stand out and I didn't want to use to many embellishments because to me, it really is all about the beautiful image.
Again, there is not alot to this card, it's really all about imagination and I certainly have
 plenty of that!
So, I would like my card to go to the following sites:
IN A SWEET PEA DREAM - celebrate with anything goes
FLUTTER BY WEDNESDAY - anything goes
CRAFTS AND ME - swirls (there are swirls on pattern paper)
STAMPALOT CHALLENGE - magical worlds
SWEET PEA STAMPERS - shower of flowers
Thanks so much for looking....Hope to see you again :)
Stay tuned for the winners of my Give away, coming in the next hour or two!
