Oh I know a little over the top, but wow did I enjoy creating this :)
Where to start.  Base layer is a lovely cerise pink, I have used this to contrast too.  The card is a centre step card and the image is a combination of the fabulous Emerald Faerie Garden image "Isabella" and Make it Crafty "Hidden Forest Seat" the sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.  The doily I have airbrushed and then embossed with holographic powders.  The ribbon is also airbrushed V15. I have used papers from Wild Rose available at Grimsby Crafts and an MS edge punch and Marianne dies. Flowers from stash along with ribbon of flowers and pearls from the Hobby House
The image has been coloured with copics and a white highlighter gel pen with diamond stickles.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 500 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 500 follower candy you can do so here, and thank Feline for advertising my candy for me.
