Willow Designs Sketch Challenge

The link is on my side bar. What an awesome prize is up for grabs folks. Please check it out before Wednesday at Willow Designs Sketch Challenge.
My card following the sketch is destined to be a birthday card for a teamie at work.

The image is from Sweetpea Stamps. Stamped in "teddy bear" brown and coloured with promarkers. Fussy cut out and mounted, first onto cinnamon then chocolate brown c.s.

The base is a pinky-red layered under mustard hand made papers. Then comes the basic grey DP. All layers sewn together. The cranberry lace strips were also sewn on before adding some homemade lace flowers with button centres. The lace for the flowers was coloured with promarkers to get the right colour. Some cranberry gems and pearls stuck on for that bit of glitz.

A small piece of the BP was stamped with the simple sentiment and heat embossed with copper to finish it off.
