10 teen

It's Monday, so that means that it's time for a new I {heart}sketches challenge at From The Heart Stamps :)
Here's the sketch, the twist this time, is to use coloured pencils...

Join in the challenge, and EVERYONE who plays will receive a $1 discount code for the store, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to the store! :)
Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too.

Here's my card...

I've made this card for a girl at work who said she was a little sad that she wasn't going to be a teenager anymore as she turns 20 this week.

I've used Martini Chicks,  coloured with promarkers as a base, then used my coloured pencils over top afterwards.
The spotty paper was free with a craft magazine some time ago, and is from a pad called 'Sew Pretty', I still had the pad on my desk from the last card that I made.
The purple/pink torn piece is by Provocraft, from the 'tags, bags, boxes & more' paper pad, I have had this paper for years, I bought it when I had a cricut machine and I sold that about 6 years ago!
The white scalloped edge was made using my eyelet border punch by Stampin Up.
'10 teen' was cut using Die-namics, By The Letter dies.
I found out some fuchsia pink organza ribbon from my stash to make the big bow, and finished with flowers using Die-namics flower and leaf trio die, with a sequin glued to the centre of each flower.
