Fri Sketchers #15: Precious moments - congrats

Another fantastic sketch over on Fri sketchers. this one was great for big stamps so had to colour in this lil beauty I've had a while: Materials:
  • Image: part of a pack of 6 foam stamps from QVC UK. (It has sold out now and isn't showing on their website anymore in case anyone was wondering, sorry!)
  • Colouring: Promarkers and a little sakura stardust pen on the flower, butterfly and the girls' bows
  • Papers: PM 'secret garden' pack
  • Others: crochet flower by moi, ribbons, brad & charms from stash.
My sister who never passed her English the first time round back in the days of CSEs & O levels (so you can work out how long ago THAT was lol) passed her English GCSE today, whoohoo. I couldn't believe it as we are always laughing at how shocking her english grammar/spelling is at times -just goes to show it's never too late! So this card is for her as she loves precious moments too. Our 16yr old nephew slightly eclipsed her though with his 6A*, 6A & 1B :) Hope all you with 16yr olds got the results you wanted/expected.
