Passion for Promarkers Challenge 33 - Sketch and theme

This is the first time I am entering the Passion for Promarkers challenge. The theme for Challenge 33 is 'Love' and there is a lovely sketch to follow. I have often wanted to enter the Passion for Promarkers challenge but never seem to get around to it, I want to enter more Challenges in 2010 so I am starting as I mean to go on.

I used a Magnolia stamped image and sentiment I got from my Friend PetraB before Christmas as a starting point for my card. I coloured it in in red and aqua green colours, I hope it doesn't look too Christmassy!
I used a mixture of papers, DCVW, My Mind's eye and Bo-bunny and the flowery backing paper is from Crate Paper to which I added some Papermania gems.
Here is a close up of my coloured image. I am so pleased with how it turned out! I am really going to concentrate on improving my shading and colouring this year and I am still searching for the best card to work with so any tips are very welcome. The card I used this time is linen texture from my local craft shop and I find it works quite well. I added some glitter glue and some glossy accents to the image after mounting it on the Nesties circle.
Here is a close up of the circle sentiment. I am probably going to give this card to my Hubby for Valentine's day. He is so supportive of my Crafting and has to put up with sleeping in our room with my Craft area in which is normally a total mess (see previous post!!).
Here is the sketch I followed. I decided to use a label shape instead of the diagonally placed rectangle.
Am off to have another look at the snow and to think about tidying my desk!
Have a good evening.
