Bella with mum

Hi everyone, I'm here to share a card I've made using the Bella with mum stamp. I attended a fantastic copics class on Saturday with the lovely, and very talented Kate. If you follow the link you can see the card we made, and I'll show you mine at the end of this post. I've been practising my colouring at every opportunity since the class, but as I don't have any copics yet I've been trying to get the same effect using Promarkers....I'm really pleased with this one, hope you like it...
 The backing paper is from the Bella Wild Rose pack. I cut the ribbon border when I borrowed the die from a friend some time ago, it's been sitting in my stash for a while waiting to be used. I've threaded it with lilac organza ribbon and added gems to the flowers. The roses are made using the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies. I made the bunting using a Forever Friends stamp and added the word 'LOVE' using gems and a heat setter.

I'd like to enter this in the following:-

I said I'd show you my card from the class so here it is...
 Thanks for visiting, see you again soon.

Happy crafting
