Wild Orchid #15 & Sketch & Stash #53

Hi girls. Thank you for calling in on me today. I hardly deserve it after yesterday when I had a bad day healthwise and was fit for nothing - didn't even get any blogging or commenting done. I am so sorry but promise to try to catch up tomorrow. I hope you are in good health and enjoying the weekend.
Fortunately I have cards made for the next couple of days (hubby was heard to say earlier in the week that I was overdoing things) so I am able to post this card that I made for Wild Orchid Challenge where the theme is "Lets get Sentimental" and Sketch and Stash who gave us a fabulous sketch.
I have inked up "The Wedding Couple" by Lili of the Valley and coloured them with my trusty Copics. The paper is SEI Juliette and I have used pearlescent card that I have punched a heart border in with my Martha Stewart punch. The flowers are by Wild Orchid and the sentiment, ribbon, glitter and hearts (new)are from my stash.
I enjoyed doing this card when I did it earlier in the week and I hope you like it and that you might have time to leave a comment to give me your views on it. I love reading your messages.
I trust that you will enjoy the rest of your weekend and above all that you are kept safe and healthy.
