A Little Thank you Card

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Today I get to show you another show case card for Grimsby Crafts.  This time using some of the new in Crafter's Companion items.  The image and the sentiment. Along with some new gorgeous Kanban papers which I have to say are delicious.

I followed the sketch at Papertake and loved how this one turned out.

So here is my card
The base layer is a pearlescent black with those gorgeous Kanban papers.  The flowers, leaves and bling are from my stash.  The image is from the Paintbox Poppets collection and is called "with love" the sentiment is from the same collection.  I have used flower soft for her flora and copics to colour the image.

Here is a close up of the sentiment
