Sweet Pea - Love is Gone

A happy Saturday to you all!!

Today I have been playing with a gorgeous Sweet Pea stamp by Ching Chou Kuik called "Love is Gone" that I got for my birthday (one of three!!).  I love these images and have been wanting to ink one up for ages and have finally found the time :0)

As there seem to be so many Autumn/Fall challenges out there at the moment, I thought I would use Autumnal colours for my card. I have distressed the edges of all the papers and glittered her wings and bangle to tie in with the lovely peachy coloured glittery DP I used for the half circle. Unfortunately, this does not show up too well in the photo :0( 

 This is a close-up of the gorgeous image. The white dotted background has been inspired by Coops (thanks Coops I love this effect).

And here is the inside.

Medium - Promarkers and white gel pen
Papers - various from my stash
Ribbon, flowers & charm - from my stash
Stamp - Crafts and Me
Ink for distressing - Memento "Rich Cocoa"
Fancy border - Doohickey die

Thanks for looking and before I go, I would like to say a big hello and thank you to my new followers.
