.. And This is Just For Karen

This is a birthday card made especially for Karen and I've used another Mo Manning image - this one is called 'Housework Fairy' and I hope on this lovely sunny day she is enjoying her birthday and taking a day off from housework and cooking.

I followed a sketch and themes of lace & pearls.

I used Promarkers to colour the image and added a few touches with a Sakura glitter pen. The large background paper was free with a magazine (I don't remember who it's by) and the smaller paper with the tiny flowers is Pink Petticoat Wild Blossoms Collection. The dies I used are Memory Box 'swirly tree', 'chloe stem' & 'cherry blossom' and Marianne Creatables LR0129 flower & LR0143 corner. The pearls and lace are from my stash and the sentiment is from one of my Joanna Sheen cds.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Sketch N Stash challenge 'Daniele's Sketch' (old papers and lace, new image)
Mo Manning DP2 challenge 'Anything Goes'
Passion for Promarkers challenge 'Lace and Swirls'
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop challenge 'Lace and Pearls'

Songbird challenge 'String of Pearls'
Live & Love Crafts challenge 'Lovely Lace / Terrific Trim'
Ladybug Crafts challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
My Mums Craft Shop challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
