Cottage Roses

Hi All! Today I have the privilege of hosting over at "Digital Two For Tuesday". Wahoo!! I was so happy when Cora sent me the two digis to choose from cos this cottage is the sweetest ever and I had to sit down immediately and color it!
Front view:
I got to thinking as I was putting this together that it would make a fab anniversary card so then I went all out with the pearls and roses and made it into a 20th anniversary card for my good friend, Wendy. But shhhh you don't know anything, remember?
 OK, here's my recipe:

Cardstock: Coredinations
DPs : K&Co
Ribbon:  Celebrate It, and Spool O'Ribbon
Pearls and flowers: Recollection
Image: Digital Two For Tuesday
Colors: Prismacolor Pencils, Distress Ink (for edges)

And a close up!
and more details:

and yet again, more details....

I was going to wait to post this tomorrow as Tuesday is my official hosting day but I just saw that Cora had the post up early so I thought Id better have mine up too.So! While I am here I will enter it into a few challenges:

Crafty Creations Challenge: Wedding or Anniversary
Frosted Design: Celebrate life
Cupcake Challenge: lace (paper lace is apparently acceptable)
Sentimental Sundays: Anything goes

ps... I notice you asked a question re copics/promarkers... (think you doing fabby with medium you using, lol)... copics have more colours, have a softer (brush like nib), are thinner to handle (in hand).. and are dearer than promarkers. .. hths xx
