Sweet Pea

I thought I'd share with you my first Sweet Pea card. Oh My! I have really fallen in love with these image; they are gorgeous. I had such fun colouring this one up, but a bit more practice is needed with the skin tones, me thinks. Anyway, you can probably expect to see a few of these stamps on this blog over the coming weeks.
I'm going to enter this into a few challenges.
