Flower Basket

Good morning to all in blogland! Up early this morning as dearly beloved is flying out to warmer climes for work for a few days, so thought I'd post this little card on before I start the school mayhem and head out to work!

Made this one over the weekend with a large stamp from Joanna Sheen called 'In a Basket' and really enjoyed colouring it. I've used promarkers and prisma pencils and kept the colours fairly pastel and muted. 

I'm a bit disappointed with the photograph as I'm sure the card looks better in 'real life', I've added a glossy accents to the flowers themselves and it makes them really stand out, but unfortunately it doesn't show up on the photo. I'd blame the photographer but he's away for work for a few days now! 
The pearlised card has been embossed with a crafts too embossing folder and the backing paper is from First Edition. The ribbon is from Joanna Sheen too. I'm still getting used to using a 'Mini Bowdabra' - the bows do still look a bit mangled and skew-whiff at times, but hopefully this one's ok lol!
Right, time to wake my youngest up :( and get us ready for the day ahead! 
Back soon, Kim x
