Sweet Pea

This is one of those cards I really enjoyed making. I got my first sweet pea stamps this week and this is the first one I've used. It's called Midnight Waiting and I've coloured her with promarkers and glitter. I've made this for several challenges.
The sentiment stamp acting as the stop for the easel is one of my favourite quotations from Mark Twain "Sing like no-one's listening, Love like you've never been hurt, Dance like no-one's watching, Live like it's heaven on earth"
The bp's are both from Crafty Ann's, the largest one is from a new mottled stone collection that isn't in the shop yet but will be asap (update: the new papers are now in the shop) and the smaller strips are the purple from the polished stone brights collection. Unfortunately, the camera has altered the colours slightly, especially of the new mottled stone one - it's made it look more blue when in reality it's a lilac/lavender shade. Look at the blog background and that's what it looks like in real life!
Thank you for dropping by today.
