LOTV Challenge card

It's time for another challenge over at the Lili of the Valley Challenge blog.

The challenge this week was to use a sketch, created by myself, and make your card to match.

This was my card and also a close up.
I'm not feeling right today, I was poorly yesterday and up all last night with a migraine.. sitting in the bathroom.. you know how it is! So today, I'm shattered and feeling quite delicate.. me? delicate? Ha! But I did need to come on and get this photograph uploaded for the challenge.

I decided to use my lovely Basic Grey Wassail papers and nesties which I got from Once Upon a Stamp when I had a drive there last week - a great little shop with a fantastic variety of nesties. I also used the Impressabilities, which I picked up at the same time,  for the background on the little square. I then inked this up lightly with Blush Rose Chalk inks.

The stamp is from the Stampin Up set Fun and Fast notes and coloured with stampin up pastels. I've added a little 3D gloss onto the cup to give it a shine.

I hope you like it.
