I Love Promarkers DT Card - Bugs

It's challenge time once again at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Bugs" and we're sponsored by Polkadoodles.  I was delighted to get a chance to use this cute Wild Rose Studios stamp, which has only seen ink once before, but, in fairness, I haven't had it very long.  It has, of course, been coloured with Promarkers, I then highlighted the image with Star Dust Stickles.
 My new camera has done it's usual trick of intensifying red shades, and has made the fuchsia roses look bright magenta.
The papers are Dovecraft, Cupcake Boutique, I was going to use the papers with the cakes on, but ended up suing the floral ones instead.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, I layered it onto a hand cut, fish-tail banner with foam pads.
The roses and leaves were made with Marianne dies, I gave the flowers a spritz of silver Spray and Sparkle for a touch of shimmer, but it was the end of the can and it came out a bit blobbly rather than a fine spray, although I suppose it looks a bit like droplets of dew.  Three pink pearls finish my card off.
