Sketch N Stash with Penny Black and Charisma

It's my niece's (the older one - not the 7 year old) and her husband's first anniversary and I chose to make a card to fit the following challenges
Sketch N Stash - "sketch, and optional 3 DPs and 3 flowers"
Penny Black - "Monochrome"
Charisma Cardz - "Love"
I chose this neglected (but inked once before) image of two cute little meeces at breakfast time, coloured in Copics and Promarkers and I used some equally neglected Stampin Up papers together with a little piece of argyle which I think is a Sizzix paper I found in my scrap drawer.  I Word processed the sentiment specifically for my image, framed it and my image with Nestie cuts and added 3 loops of SU ribbon, 3 bought flowers to which I added gems, and a button and bow.
I haven't been able to get onto the internet for the last few days so I'm sorry I haven't been by for a visit.  I have had to resort to a visit to Starbucks in order to make this post !

Yay for Starbucks! ;) I think this is a gorgeous card. I'm loving the yellowy hue (My fav colour) and I think the papers work really well together. It has a lovely clean, fresh feel to it and will be well received I'm sure. xxx

This is a beautiful CAS card something I of course would have great difficulty with lol...and I must admit, your persistance paid off with the fonts because it came out beautifully.
