Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #6

Thank you to everyone who took part in our challenge last week 'Mum's the Word', we had lots of wonderful entries. Though here in the UK we celebrated Mothers Day back in March, it is Mothers Day today for many, so I want to wish all mum's a Happy Mothers Day wherever in the world you are.
This weeks challenge is our very first sketch for you, the DT have made some beautiful creations to help inspire you, so please check out the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge blog. This weeks challenge is being sponsered by our very own DT member Nikki.
Here is the sketch we would like you to follow:

And here is my DT card following the sketch:

The image is an Amy Butler stamp from K & Co. The pink bud stem was hand drawn in by myself to match the K & Co paper. Coloured with copics and blender then chalked and inked the edges. Mounted onto green and pink cardstock from my scraps stash. Used more of the green cardstock and added light blue organza ribbon knotted and bowed. Sentiment from my craft stash, not sure where from.

I do hope you'll be able join us for our latest challenge, myself and the rest of the DT look forwarding to seeing your creations.
