Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #6 - Sketch

Hello and a very Happy Mothers' Day to all - it's not Mothers' Day here in the UK but I'm liking the idea of celebrating twice.
I had a lovely day yesterday. I went to Stampeezee in Coventry and attended an hour long demonstration by the lovely and talented Jayne Nestorenko - the lady behind the gorgeous "cute companion" stamps and CDs.
I was lucky enough to spend some time crafting today and have followed this week's sketch from Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.




I decorated the inside of this card too.
I'm not too happy with the colouring of this image - I need to spend lots of time practising with the Copics, but I've used it as I hate to discard coloured images. I know it sound silly but I get attached to the images as I am colouring them and they become more than just pieces of card.
Here's what I used.
Image: Sugar Nellie 'Reflective'
Designer Papers: freebie from an old issue of 'Crafts Beautiful'
Cardstock: Die Cuts with a View
Sentiment: Papermania Clare Curd
Flourishes: from an Inkadoo stamp set
Tools: Spellbinders Labels nestabilities, Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers embossing folder
Copics and Glamour Dust.
Thank you for stopping by and looking.
