Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 63 - A Sketch!

This week at Crafty Cardmakers, our challenge is a sketch by my team mate, Susie!

Our sponsors this week are

And the sketch:
I was lucky enough to be able to choose a gorgeous image from our Sponsor, and knowing that I need to get started on my Easter cards, I chose a lovely rose bouquet.
I coloured the image with Promarkers (and the background with a Flexmarker), and matted the image using some Spellbinders Nestibilities. The ribbon is threaded through another Spellbinders die cut, and the papers are from Papermania. To finish, I've used some ribbon roses and some sticky gems (which I coloured with Promarkers). The sentiment is hand-written and edged using a Letraset metallic marker.

Hope you can join us!
