Friday Sketchers challenge 46

Hi all,
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend. Back to work tomorrow for me...boo hoo. But before the weekend comes to an end I just want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and congratulations on the arrival of my beautiful princes grandaughter, Nicole Hayley. I love you all...

Now onto the challenge. The sketch for Friday Sketchers this week is by Heidi from Norway. I thought this was simple but very effective, and it's one I will probably use again. The Gorjuss Girls (set 1) came out again as I do love them so.
I used more papers from Bo Bunny. I love the colour combination of this set. They are very fresh papers with strong patterns which I love. I followed the pink and blue theme, colouring the image with Copic markers. I used my Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch as I just love the effect it gives. I punched out the flowers with my EK Success Retro Flower punch...I told you I'm loving it. I use it soooo much as you can see. I added two shades of organza ribbon tied together on the bottom corner for added detail. Oh and don't forget the crystals added to the flower centres.
I curved the petals, supporting them with silicone glue for added dimension.

The inside was decorated using the same papers and a full size image again. And MORE flowers.
Here's a close up of the image. I'd be pleased to hear your comments if you care to leave any.
Take care now.
