A Sketch challenge at PanPastel UK

Good morning folks, my second post of the day, this time for our new challenge at PanPastel UK where we have a sketch designed by the lovely Pete to inspire you this week Our lucky winner will receive a fab PanPastel starter kit (only available to UK winners due to postage increases) and of course the honor of a place on our Wall of Fame and a winners badge for your blog! 

I've created a background with PanPastels and also used my trusty pans to colour some card i'd embossed with an embossing folder. I made a little fold over envelope (using a spellbinders bauble die lol) to hide a secret message and added some twine and a seahorse charm . The sentiment is a rubber stamp from PolkaDoodles again on a PanPastel background. The focal image is a digistamp from Sweet Pea stamps, isn't she gorgeous? I was lucky enough to win some Sweet Pea digis recently and I'm really loving colouring them up.  I've coloured her with Graph'it Markers. You can see her a bit better in this pic:

To finish off i've added some beaded trim to echo the effect of water droplets and a seam binding bow.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments: girl power
Creative Card Crew: No designer paper
Delicious Doodles: use a charm
Marker Pop: die cuts
Word Art Wednesday : anything goes

Thanks for popping by, have a good Sunday
