Cute Card Thursday #157 - Sketch

Happy Thursday!

Our challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is a sketch by Deb. Here is the sketch...
and here is my card...


Paper: DCWV,Floral Dreams (K&Co)
Accessories: Flowers, Pearls, Copics Airbrush System, lace, Branch Punch, doily


I love to experiment with different ways of coloring. I have always loved this beautiful style of coloring and wanted to give it a try. I just love the intense contrast with the light and dark. 


I used my Copics Airbrush System to add color to some of my roses. 


I added branches to my sentiment.


I used lace instead of ribbon which I really like as it gives a very soft elegance to the card. 

I am also entering this in the following challenges:

A Spoonful of Sugar - Ribbons, Pearls/Rhinestones and Flowers
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Mother's Day/Girlie Challenge (I went with girlie)
Magnolia-licious Highlites - Easter/Spring Extravaganza
