Sketch & Stash Challenge #3 and Marie Curie

I've made some cards today specifically for Marie Curie. One was made following the sketch for challenge 3 over on Sketch & Stash.

Hopefully I've stuck to the sketch ok, as it was for a square card, and as you can see I've done A6, which is the size the cards need to be for Marie Curie, so I hope it's ok. The stamp is one I've had for a couple of years and naughty me never got round to using it until today. The image was coloured with copics and sakura stardust pens for a touch of sparkle, lightly chalked the background in green and inked the edges in deep pink. The oval was cut using nesties in the bug. The pink papers are PM 'Sweet Nothings' which I got yesterday in the Do-Crafts goodies bag, the green paper was from my scraps stash. The pink felt ribbon was also from the Do-Crafts bag, then punched the flowers out of one of the pink papers and chalked the edges in green then added flat pearls to the centres. Sentiment is from Kanban. Below is the sketch to follow:

Emma and myself picked up some Marie Curie bags yesterday from the Range, so today was a good time to get started on them. Here are the other two A6 cards I made (not following the above sketch):

Though it snowed all morning it just left slush on the ground. Luckily Steve set off from Manchester at 10 o'clock this morning, and he said everything kept flowing steadily and the gritters were out in force, especially across the Pennines so with that and with everyone driving sensibly he got home safely just after lunch, thankfully. Thanks to everyone for your messages this morning.
