Love Grows

Good morning folks, how you all doing?  We're in a bright mood this morning as we have a little sunshine here at the moment but it is clouding over a bit, but hey its dry so I'm not complaining.
I've got a poorly chap at home today - it didn't take long for him to pick something up he only went back to school on Monday!!!  So I've popped on quickly to show you my card I finished last night.  I've used a Lili of the Valley stamp and don't they look cute.  They've been coloured mainly with promarkers apart from the greys which were copics.
Image:  Lili of the Valley 'love grows'
Medium:  Promarkers and copics
Papers: My mind's eye 'wild asparagus'
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts
Dies:  Magnolia Doohickery border, Cheery Lynn 'fanciful flourish', Marianne Creatables
Sentiments:  Whimsy
A bit of a side view of the card.  My card base is a Craftwork Cards 'pure kraft' 6 x 6 and the inside has been decorated to compliment the front.
Lastly a close up.  I used the ultra fine nibs with the promarkers to colour the images it made it alot easier.

Colours used
Dress/shoes/pot/shirt/chaps hat:  Pros burgandy, coral, sunkissed pink (love this combo makes a lovely reddy pink almost dark salmon colour)
Girls hat/wellies/shorts:  Pros olive green, marsh green, khaki, pastel beige
Watering can/apron/gloves:  copics W00, W1, W3, W5, W7
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Okay, its still all sunshiney out there so I'm off to hang out my washing, so you watch it rain now!!!!
Happy Friday folks and I hope you have a good weekend.
