Fussy and Fancy DT Card - Sketch Challenge

If you're looking for my Digi Haven DT project, it's in the post below.

It's challenge time again at Fussy and Fancy, this time we have a sketch for you to follow, I love a sketch, and this one is particularly nice I think, with plenty of lovely layers. We're sponsored this fortnight by Fresh Brewed Designs.

 I've used a Wee Stamps stamp called Silver Fairy, which I've coloured with Promarkers.  She's a beautiful stamp and huge too, I thoroughly enjoyed colouring her, I've had her a few months but hadn't got round to inking her, I'm sure it won't be long before I use her again.
The pretty papers are Lili of the Valley, Perfect Pair, in my all time fave colour combo of pink and green, and the particular shades of pink and green in this stack are just so appealing, a pack to stroke and sniff if ever there was one!  For the circular element of the sketch, I've used a Dovecraft doily, which happened to be just the right shade of pink.
The flowers are all handmade with Nellie Snellen and a Woodware punch, the leafy punch is Woodware too.  I save myself a small fortune by making my own flowers, or so I tell myself when I'm buying yet another pack of paper or punch to make them with!  Pretty pink ribbon with a bow and a stamped sentiment done with a Papermania stamp finish off my girly card.
