Stampartic Challenge

I have a sneaky feeling my camera is on it's way out. For the last couple of weeks I've noticed my photographs are slightly blurred. I've cleaned it and done everything else I can think of - to no avail. Another item for my ever growing wish list!!

I've been meaning to enter a Stampartic challenge for some time, but never got around to it. When I saw the fabulous sketch for this one I just had to do it.
I used paper from a Basic Grey with K&Co pad, together with bazzill basic cardstock. The image is Magnolia's Angel of the Year 2008 and coloured with pastels. I cut the flowers with the EK Success retro flower punch and the leaves with Leone Em branch punches.

Materials
BC - bazzill : DP - Basic Grey with K&Co : Image - Magnolia : Derwent pastels : Punches - EK Success & Leone Em : Pearl brads and ribbon from stash.

This is truly beautiful, Heather. The way you've coloured the image is amazing (esp. her hair!). I love the antique feel to this card. And the handmade/punched flowers and leaves are gorgeous - I'm off to find that leaf punch now!!!
