Clare's weekly challenge - pink flowers and swirls

This is my card for Clare's Weekly Challenge on the DoCrafts website. This week's challenge was sketch challenge. I rotated the sketch for my card.

I stamped the flower bouquet image with a Memento ink pad. The stamp is my Circa Designs. I coloured in the image with ProMarkers. I added highlight with Sakura pens. I stamped some of the flowers again and I used them to decorate the corners as per the sketch. I mounted the finished image onto black and gold card panels.

I chose to use a scalloped edge card blank as I thought this would complete the image and background paper. The swirl background paper is from the Henbury Lane range by DoCrafts. I attached a piece of bright pink ribbon across the background paper before I attacked it to the card blank. I tied another piece of the ribbon to the ribbon strip. To finish I added a greeting by Craftwork Cards.
