Good evening, what terrible weather we are having here today, I hope you are all well.  This is a card I've made using the sketch over on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog.

The image is Mo Manning's 'Shy' and I have coloured her with a combination of ProMarker and  Spectrum Noir pens.   The backing papers are from the Pink Petticoat Wild Blossoms collection that came free with my Quick Cards magazine.  I didn't have any ribbon to match so I coloured some seam binding with my Spectrum Noir pens and finished my card with some layered flowers topped with a button from my stash.

Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card that has been decorated to complement the front.

Image:  Mo Manning - Shy
Papers:  Pink Petticoat - Wild Blossoms collection
Tools:  Spellbinders - Classic Squares (inside card), Ribbon Tag Trio Three, Martha Stewart - Doily Lace punch
Embellishments:  Ribbons Girls - seam binding, flowers, buttons and raffia from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

I would  like to enter this card into the following challenges:
