you're so special

Hello everyone I hope  you all had a great weekend. I had quite a good weekend although didn't get as many cards done as I wanted although I'm enjoying card making again it's still taking me all my time to complete them I spent all Saturday night on this one except for the colouring I had already done that!!! :o(
But I habe to say I am really pleased with the finished card and it's in colours I wouldn't usually use together

here it is hope you like it

 As you will know just by looking the image is a Mo Manning image coloured with pro marker (info in a mo) (no pun intended :o} )
All papers are freebies and have been inked with DI seedless preserves and peeled paint and crushed olives (the later 2 are new stash :o) )
Then I matted papers onto white card that I distressed

 Can you beli9eve I have never used this image before Gasp shoch horror I know I hang my head in shame sorry Mo
 As I said earlier image was coloured with PM's colours used are
burnt orange, coral, sunkissed pink, blush, linen, dusky pink, putty (skin)
Nutmeg, auburn, saddle brown, rosewood,satin, sandstone cinnamon, cocoa (hair)
 pressed leaf, pear green, olive green,
lime zest, lime green, bright green, soft green, khaki, soft khaki
spring lilac, orchid, pink lavender antique white (clothes) Blender some of these are newn stash too whoop whoop

 I cut image out with spellbinder die (also new) and inked with DI
I added a metal corner and although I only brought these Friday I can't remember who made them
the flowers are by hobby house and michaels and some are from my stash

 I added a mixed fussy bow using purple and green organza ribbon then added a heart charm which was silver but I decided to colour it I used red gold metalic pro marker gave it a couple of caots then went over with an acrylic glaze to seal wasn't sure if it would work but it seemed to do the trick.(Joy!) then I also added kanban glittery cord

I used papers from the main card to make insert and added image and another sentimentjust to finish off

 so there you have it hope you like it and I will see you all again very soon
