An Elisabeth Bells Image card

Hiya peeps,
Just a quick one today as its early in the morning and I want to go to bed, 
but to be fair I wanted you all to see this gorgeous card that I made yesterday (Sunday).

The image is called Miss Apple Blossom Vignette, which is part of the 
Little Cottage Cuties Collection by Elisabeth Bell but made for Whimsy Stamps.

I also used the chance to follow a blog challenge sketch, for the Digi Bells DT Blog which are advertising for Guest DT members for March, to join them on a 3 month period. 
This is the sketch I was following:

I also wanted to use this card in other challenges so I used the colour purple, mixed in with 
lilac, shocking pink, other shades of pink & purples and white. I used a piece of
embossed card (white under the image),  die cuts (rectangle frames behind 
the sentiment), flourishes, flowers and scalloped semi circles. The image was coloured 
using Promarkers and slight use of a Sakura Gelly Roll Glitter pen (on her eyes). 
Lastly was the added addition of the3 faux flat backed pearls in a gorgeous purple and 
then the white slightly larger same type pearls in the center of the paper flowers.
