PICKLES AND PETRA

Today I have a card to share with you and to enter into a couple of challenges.  I have used an image from Sherri Baldy called PICKLES AND PETRA, to buy any of the 'Bestie' images there is a link in my side bar.  I have coloured the image with Graph It Markers and mounted onto red card then onto some backing paper that I have had in my stash for some years that I got from Elusive Images now called Chocolate Baroque, the base paper is from Bearly Mine.  I have used a red pearlescent 7 x 7 card base added burgundy organza ribbon, lace, sentiment, pearls and a red tissue paper flower that I punched out with a scalloped circle punch then scrunched up to hold it all together I added a pearl brad, I distressed the image and sentiment with TH Vintage Photo ink.
The challenges I would like to enter is as follows:
Second Picture 
Picture No:3 
I was blessed to have been asked to join the 'MY BESTIE' design team my first DT card will be shown in June so I do hope that you will keep an eye open.
Many thanks for visiting my blog I hope that you like my card please feel free to come back anytime, I would also like to say a big thank you for all who leave me such heartwarming comments.
