Hanging Basket for Mum

More from my rather large collection of Imagination Crafts stamps, this time it's this pretty hanging basket design, which I've coloured with Promarkers.
 I've used a Craftwork Cards shaped blank and layered up with Dovecraft Back to Basics IV papers and a doily.  The sentiment was stamped with a Papermania stamp.
The ivy was made with a Joanna Sheen Signature die, which was a Christmas present from a crafty friend; it cuts beautifully, even although the stems and tendrils are very fine, and I love how it embosses the veins.
To finish off, I added coloured pearls to the flower centres and to the sentiment panel, and yellow gems to pick out the shape of the card blank.
