Sketch & Stash meets Creative Inspirations

I've combined this fortnight's Sketch & Stash sketch, with the 'Gems & Pearls' theme of the Creative Inspirations Challenge on this card. My new item is the Miss Anya image (sent to me in a swap by my lovely ABC DT mate Jen). I coloured the image first...and then really struggled to find a paper that matched...but did eventually find this design in the 'Eva' pad by BasicGrey which sort of goes...which is why I usually choose the papers first! lol
I used 3 different colours of grosgrain ribbon (from Poppicrafts), to meet the optional challenge, with some adhesive gems and pearls in the corners. The flowers are a mixture of Poppicrafts and Hobbycraft.

Apologies for the awful photo...I really struggled to get a decent photo of this card...I just can't get the colours to look right! lol
