Sugar Nellie Sketch Challenge

Wow 2 posts for me today not something i get to do often but now have my new printer and have been waiting to play with this image. I used Flora isn't she just stunning and a joy to colour. I used my promarkers and found this lovely rose satin 12 x12 paper in my box. It was the perfect colour match. The ribbon is from Hobby Craft bought a while back this was my mum's fave colour. Sentiment is a Stampin up I think. Flowers are from my stash and the large one is a Prima flower sent from a friend for my Birthday. Pearls for the flower centres. Silver Mirri card to add a little bling. The layout is Sugar Nellies Challenge The Sugar Bowl which is what I am entering this into.
I am also entering this into Hooked on Crafts - anything goes
