Crafty Pad Challenge 16

The challenge was to follow the sketch and use a Crafty Pad image so this is my take on the challenge.
I chose colours that complimented each other in soft greens and yellows. The background paper is a check with script. I placed a script paper over this and chose a floral paper for the diamond shape. The soft green and yellow paper was next as it blended well with script paper. I used Faith in a frame omitting the frame as the image and drew in the flowers in her hair to compliment the floral paper, along with a floral stamp in the corners. A green ribbon was placed along the bottom of the card and gold bars with gold hearts were placed along the right hand side and under the image. The sentiment Especially for You finished off the card.
This was a good challenge as it added a lot of elements making it interesting to create a card that is balanced.
