Sketch Saturday- Glamorous Gardening!

Woo hoo! It's the weekend again and that can only mean one thing! Sketch Saturday time! I have to admit I'm quite excited to show you this card today as it's probably one of my fav makes at the moment :0)

So here it is...

This is a card my Mum asked me to make for my sis. If you know my sis, it is sooooo appropriate!! I used Glamorous Gardening by LOTV. I love this image so much, it's just so cute and a joy to colour. I coloured with a mixture of copics, watercolours and lyras- I didn't have a blue copic to match the blue in the background papers. These gorgeous papers- really remind me of hot summery days- are of course by MME called Ooh La La. Gorgeous flowers are by Prima, die cut flower is the Magnolia Strawberry leaf and flower die. Sentiment is Papertrey Ink from their Garden Variety stamp set. Finally I added some champagne hot fix crystals for bling!

A little closer look!
