Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - A Day For Daisies

Soooo, it is Wednesday, which means that it is time for another challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, and this week we have a great sketch for you to work with:

We are sponsored by one of our more regular sponsors, A Day For Daisies:

A DAY FOR DAISIES provides themed categories of over 1000 fun and whimsical digital images, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!

So, as is typical of me, my card turned out absolutely nothing like I had planned in my head (I was aiming for My Fair Lady, but didn't quite manage that), but I still think it turned out OK:

I coloured my image with promarkers, after choosing my papers, therefore making sure the colours matched.  I decided to go as decadent as I could for this card, as I think that the image required it, so deep colours with damask-style papers.

I made the grey card to layer the image and the yellow paper onto by using white card and just colouring the edges with a grey spectrum noir.

To finish the card, I added a purpley-pink satin flower to the bottom left-hand corner of the image, with a purple pearl to either side.  I also added a purple pearl in the opposite corner, with a smaller yellow pearl at either side.  I also added gems in each corner of the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
