My first Inky Impressions card :)

Today is a new challenge over at the Inky Impressions challenge blog and the challenge is to use flowers. This is my very first card as a DT member:)

I have used Lili's Prayer which you can find along with loads of other cuties in the Inky Impressions store.
I coloured her as usual with Promarkers (list of colours at the end of the post).
I followed the sketch from the Sweet  Stamping Challenge blog.
The paper is another freebie from a was actualy a book of papers that came free with a magazine, not that thin rubbish paper you sometimes get.
I used a SU flower punch for the flowers and some flowers from my stash for the middle, and pearls in the centre that were originally white but I coloured then with Promarkers.
The pretty lacey ribbon stuff that you can just about see (sorry don't know what it's actually called), it from Hobbycraft and is sooo pretty irl and I used a paper border strip by making memories. I got them for a bargain price from TK Max of all places! I spotted them while in there looking for clothes for the kids, they had 2 packs stapled together priced at £2.99, so I got 48 borders for less than I would be for 24 at the price they are in craft stores :)

 I love this little cutie, so pretty :)
Sorry about the pics, I've really been struggling to get decent pics this week.

Promarker colours
skin: oatmeal, blush, ivory, baby pink
Hair: cocoa, cinnamon, raw sienna
Clothes: baby pink, cocktail pink, rose pink, pastle blue, powder blue, denim blue
Shoes: blush, ivory
