Special Day

This card started out as an entry into a new challenge I found called sketchandstash, they are offering some great Pollycraft stamps (I want, I want, I want) as a prize this week. Unfortunately, it didn't quite work out according to the sketch, so I'm gonna have to go and start again.
I'm not entirely happy with the colours on this one, I think the outer nestie pink card is too, well too pink really, but I couldn't find anything I prefered, so I stuck with this. This is what I used for the rest of the card:

Nesties
HOTP papers
Elisabeth Bell stamp
Sentiment from K&Co embellishment box
Roses made with Daisy punch
Martha Stewart punch
Pearly coloured beads from stash
Ribbon from stash
Whispers Brush markers

Hope you're having a good week and the weather isn't getting you down too much. Bye for now.x
