1st attempt with my new sweet pea stamp!

Hi everyone! I've nothing interesting to share with you this week, so it's just straight to the card! Lol!
This week there's a fab sketch at CI Wednesday challenge by the lovely and talented Nat, here's the sketch

I have rotated this 90 degrees clockwise and came up with this...

I have inked up one of my new Sweet Pea stamps from the Paperlane in Northallerton, and I can just tell she's gonna be one of my favourites of this year!

The papers are K & Co and magnolia. I've sewn and distressed with walnut stain all but the turquise section, instead with this one I used doily punch from MS and added tons of stardust stickles.
Lace is from WOC (horizontal) and from my birthday goodies from the gorgeous Mona (vertical)

As always the image is coloured with DI's. I've added tons of stardust stickles to wings and moon, and some clear star gel pen to her clothing and leaves.

This weeks prize is a selection of floral ribbons from Crafty Ribbons so I do hope you can play along.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
