Magical Crafts fortnightly challenge DT card

Today sees a new challenge over at Magical Crafts fortnightly challenge - there's a fantastic sketch for today's challenge over at the blog. 

Here's my first DT card for the Magical Crafts fortnightly challenge blog:

Here is the fantastic sketch for you to follow:

I'm really looking forward to visiting the blogs of the challenge entries to see everyone's take on the sketch.  This challenge's sponsor is Simon Says Stamp and there is a fantastic prize of $10 for the winner to spend in the SSS store! 

Don't forget to check out the blogs of the other DT members - there's some brilliant samples this week!

This is a much bigger card than I normally make - it is a 10" square card blank. 

Here is what I've used:

Image - rubber stamp from Whiff of Joy, coloured with Promarkers
Patterned papers - Hot off the Press
Papers inked with Distress Ink (brushed corduroy)
Faux Suede flowers - by Flower Factory (from MSA crafts)
Swirls - cut from Sizzix/Bigz dies
Brads - Papermania
Buttons and pearls from stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

By the cute and girly: Celebration - she looks to me like she's proudly carrying in a tray of goodies to a party
Cutie Stampers: use lots of Flowers
Charisma Cardz: Make a girly card with flowers

Thanks for looking and I do hope you can join us for this challenge!
