Love makes everything grow...

Hi again, Susan here. As I have said before I love working from sketches and this one from Friday Sketchers is one of my favourites. I love layering papers, ribbons and lace, I think it is such a nice look.
I used an Artylicious CD called Damask Delights for the background papers, and because my printer can do this, I lightened them slightly to keep in with the soft greens and aquas that I wanted.
The lace I buy from my local market.

This is one of my favourite stamps from Sarah Kay, although saying that I really like them all!!
I have coloured it in with Pro-Markers and thanks to you all out there, I have been blog hopping and learnt a lot from many of you about how to get the best out of the Pro-Markers. I was quite pleased with the results of this one.

The flowers are a mixture of my own hand made ones and some from Wild Orchid Crafts that I coloured in with inks to match my colour scheme.
The label I produced on my computer.
I have entered this card in the following challenges:-
Thank you so much for looking at my creation, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan


  1. Hi Mam,
    Love this card so much. The soft blues/greens/aquas are so delicate and special. The stampe is a really sweet and precious image and suits the overall look of your card really well. As usual, I adore your flowers, lace and pearls.
    Another fabulous card!

  2. Oh Susan what a stunning card ! The colours are so soft and gentle. I love the butterfly border - so cute - and the image is really sweet... Love the centers of the big flowers (I suppose they are brads, they are gorgeous !). And your colouring is fab too ! Hugs and smiles from Catherine
