paper makeup challenge

good morning all, i woke in a happy bubbly mood today, dunno why?, the weather hasn't got anything to do with it cos its miserable and wet here. not much planned for me today, work this morning till lunch time then the day is mine to do as i choose hmmm what do you think i'll be doing lol.
this week over at paper makeup the challenge is a sketch by the fabulous dawn
so i thought i'd have a go this week and this is my entry

the papers are form the papermania exquisite collection, edges inked with tea dye distress ink, the image is an elizabeth bell "daisy on her trike" coloured with promarkers and cut with a nestie, the roses are joanna sheen, i wrapped the stems round a pencil and added a clear crystal bead to the ends as i thought the card was a bit plain( still do if i'm honest but hey its done now), the ribbon is from stash and ran through the swiss dots embossing folder though it doesnt show up very well in the piccy but looks good IRL honest!! the instructions on how to do this are here

Thanks for popping in
