Sketch N Stash DT Card #78

Hi everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year and are not suffering too much this morning?

It's time for another Sketch N Stash Challenge and this time our sketch is from the lovely Michelle and I couldn't resist using this adorable digi from Heather Ellis, just look at that wonderful expression isn't she too sweet?
I recently purchased this wonderful Marianne 'Chinese Rose' die, I've admired it so much when I've seen it on other people's creations (Edna, take heed as you're mainly responsible for this!)  Unfortunately, I don't seem to have mastered the technique involved and it's not looking it's best here. I think a lot more practice is required, so if any of you have any hints or tips I'd be very grateful.

Card Details:
* Image - Heather Ellis 'Pure Innocence 034'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - K & Company and DCWV
* Sentiment - Pink Petticoat 'Girly Curly'
* Dies - Marianne Designs Creatables 'Chinese Rose'
* Everything else from my stash

We have a brand new sponsor for this brand new year, Heather Ellis I'm sure you are familiar with her wonderful digis, but if not please visit her. I love the simplicity of her drawings, no wonder this range is called 'Pure Innocence'

I hope you can manage to join us again this time, we're looking forward to spending another year with you, looking at your gorgeous creations and scratching our heads over choosing our 'Top 3'
Pop over to the challenge blog to see who made it last time and who our lucky winner was.
