Lofty ideas

Finally I'm on time with my card for A & T Digital Design. Woohoo!
For next two weeks you have time to make a project following a sketch from A & T Challenges. Be sure to check my team mates blogs to get more inspiration. I know you love what you see :o)

On my card I used pattern paper from Apple Blossom kit and  Isla. My card is ment for my good colleque who's leaving for another job. She needs lots of lofty ideas in there :) I'm sad that she leavs but I'm really happy for her. I thought that Isla is perfect on her card.
Card sketch shows the doily but I didn't had any. So I stamped it digitally on the paper. Isla is colored with ProMarkers and I added some sticles to her wings and also on flowes. Clouds behind Isla is inked with Broken China Distress ink. Actually centers of apple blossoms on pettern paper are covered with Gelly Roll Clear Star gel pen but it's not show on the photo. I added some pearls on the card too.

Matting papers are all colored with Promarker - Plum. I like that that way I can make the paper exactly the color I want. Punched border strips are also colored the same marker as matting papers. I did some dots with white gel pen to pop it out a bit more. Small flowers in center of larger flowers are leftover pieces from the same border strip. Sentiments are computer generated.
