Pretty Bouquet

Good Morning Everyone,
Wow! what a shock..what happened to blogger! I wasn't very good with the last one, so I don't know what I'll be like with this, anyway not to worry I'm sure I will work it out lol!!
My card for today is Pretty Bouquet by LOTV, she is gorgeous.  I loved her from the moment I saw her.  I have made her for my Mom's birthday in May...am I good or what lol! I'm a bit ahead of myself for a change lol!!
This is my take on Dawny P's sketch for Simon Says..do you think it qualifies?


A peek at the inside


Card Recipe
Image: Pretty Bouquet by LOTV
Colour medium: Prisma Pencils
Design Paper: Love Song by Pion Design
Embellishments: Lace and flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon - My local market
Gems: Papermania
Die: Spellbinders Labels Eighteen
Corner: Cuttlebug
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Glitter: Stickles Diamond and Liquid Pearls Lemon Yellow

I coloured her with my prisma's and learnt a little bit about colour..have tried many combinations to achieve the colour I wanted. The colours you think you should use, are not always the right ones and you have to try from different shades of that colour, up and down the spectrum, if you know what I mean.
I have used Liquid Pearls on the flowers and the spine of the butterfly..hope this qualifies for lotv's challenge  diamonds and pearls..didn't have any pearls that would go with the colours I have chosen, the liquid pearls look quiet good on the real thing. I also finished the flowers and butterfly with Stickles Diamond.
The papers are really gorgeous, and I used the complimentary papers inside as they came on a 12x12 sheet in a set of 4.  My sentiment was computer generated.

Entering the following challenges:

Would like to say thank you for all the lovely comments on my easel card, and also a big welcome to my new followers...do appreciate the time you all take to come and visit me..mwah!!
Biggest of hugs,
Marjorie
