Pink, Pearls and Lace

I had originally made this card for the A Day For Daisies challenge but I forgot to blog it and therefore missed the challenge deadline! I've used A Day For Daisies image and coloured it with Promarkers plus added a tiny half pearl to the ribbon on the Mummy duck.

The backing paper is actually recycled wrapping paper from one of my Birthday presents - the paper was too pretty to throw away! The lace too is recycled and is from the scrap store - I just about had enough and the gap is hidden under the image. Ribbon and flowers are from my stash.

The pink pearl heart and the half pearls I bought from Meiflower and the sentiment is an acrylic stamp I got ages ago as a magazine freebie along with others. A bit of fine line black pen dotting around the edges and its complete!
