Sketch & Stash #58 & ABC ...R is for Roses

Hi girls. Well I hope all you mums were royally treated and spoiled yesterday. I know I was. It's great to have you here on my blog and I hope you enjoy your visit. Perhaps you might even find a little something to please or inspire you in your crafting.
I made this card to enter into two challenges. Sketch and Stash gave us a wonderful sketch to follow and ABC wanted Roses this week. I have inked up Lili of the Valley's "Rosie with Cake" and I have coloured with my trusty Copics. The papers are downloads from the Nitwits Collection. I have used Wild Orchid roses and leaves and applied lots and lots of glitter which unfortunately does not show very well on this photo. The ribbon is from my stash.
Your opinions on this card would be much appreciated so if you can find a minute to leave a comment I would really be grateful. I hope you have a great day and that above all you stay safe and healthy.
