Hearts & Flowers at Charisma Cardz

Good morning all,
 I hope you are all having a good day.  Today is a public holiday here so there was no early school run this morning (schools here start at 7:40 am!) and i am planning on having a relaxing day.  Probably wont end up like that but at least i can try! 
Yesterday was busy, dropped little man at school 7:40 am (we have to go by car, its too far), back home, back to school 10:20 for kid/parent presentation about our home country, back home, back to school to pick up little man at home time, back home, back to school at night for little man's first school disco! Back home, pick up Daddy cos we were using the car,  back home................ shattered! lol
Anyhoo, enough about me! I'm here to let you know about the new challenge over at Charisma Cardz. 
This week the theme is : Hearts and Flowers
There are two fab sponsors. 
Stamp Fairy who are offering one lucky winner a $10 voucher to spend in their online store.
Marker Pop who are also offering one lucky winner a $10 voucher to spend in their online store.
I was delighted to receive this beautiful image from Stamp Fairy to
use on my card.  You can find it here. I coloured it with copics and paper pieced the tie and bow.  The papers are from the XOXO collection by American Crafts.  The corners are Cheery Lynn die cuts and the flowers are from Hobbycraft that i coloured using Martha Stewart paints.
