Blue Rose Tattoo - in Purples

I don't normally post a card on a Sunday, but as it has been a couple of days since my last card, I thought I'd share this one with you.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - the sketch
Creative Card Crew - Easel Card
Stamping Royalty - Seeing Doubles (the two flower combos are the same)
Sweet Stampin - Pearls and Pins
Stamp Magic - Friendship
A Pocket Full of Posies - One For the Girls
Yet another Sweet Pea image - this one is called Blue Rose Tatoo. I've coloured it up with a mix of distress ink, Promarkers and Smooch inks. I love the way the smooch in gives a beautiful pearly sheen, but that is really hard to pick up in a photo.

The papers are Basic Grey Wisteria. I've used Mark Richards 3mm pearls; I also made my own pins for this card. The sentiment stamp is a Teresa Collins one called True Friendship. There are crystal stickles on the card too.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
