Weekend Sketch Challenge #50

This is my card for Beate's WSC50. I made a couple of changes, but hopefully still enough of the sketch there to count. I didn't have much time for putting a card together today, so used an image that was already coloured in, hence the use of an oval instead of a rectangle. The image didn't look as good on the right side of the card, so switched it to the left. The colours do look better together in the flesh than in this picture. Anyway . . . enough excuses!
The image is a Penny Black - Bees and Bunny. Coloured with Twinkling H2Os and watercolour pencils. Oval cut with a Nestability Classic Oval. Hand drawn lines with the fine end of a pink watercolour marker. The daisies are a Woodware daisy punch - two layers of white petals with the tips coloured with H2Os. The centres are a 1/4" circle punch also coloured with H2Os
Pink gingham ribbon, on a strip of white card punched with a Woodware Cross Star Ribbon border punch along both edges. The two backing papers are both sides of a double sided design by Imaginisce called For Peep's Sake/Pretty New Dress. The outer blue layer has lines drawn with the same pink marker as around the oval.
I may put a greeting in the space above the ribbon strip, but am not sure if I want to cover up any more of the lovely yellow paper! Each of the little white daisies in the grid have a blue twinkly glitter centre that doesn't show in the picture. The card measures about 12cm x 16cm.
