Belles and Whistles Challenge 1 - DIY flowers + Basicgrey Challenge week 21 - A sketch by Martine

Good morning everyone, did you all enjoy your day off work well those people that had one anyway...I spent most of it watching TV and lazing about...my card today is for the new Belles and Whistles first challenge which is to make your own flowers and I used the fabulous sketch by Martine for the Basicgrey challenge too...love this sketch Martine
I realised I hadn't used this little sweetie for ages so had to ink her up shes so beautiful isn't she...I coloured her with Distress ink and put her with some of the new Cappella papers from the Basicgrey 6x6 pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I love these pads because they are a shrunken pattern so you get the whole 12x12 sheet shrunk to fit a card...I used a Sakura blossom punch by Woodware for the layers of my flowers and scrunched them up layered three of them and added a big pearl also from Bunny Zoe's Crafts (you can see the closeup above) I had meant to spray with glimmer mist but forgot lol...all I needed to finish was a brown velvet ribbon...I hope you like it and enjoy the rest of your day
