Ismaki Challenge Card- Happy Birthday Mum!

I'm feeling strange and confused, as I show my next Ismaki challenge card, as I almost don't recognise it as mine! Using a sketch is very exciting, as it does make you think in a very different way to how you normally do. To me, this seems quite cluttered, as I have lots of different elements on the card, but actually, now I see the photo, I see how there is a balance to the design. Here is the sketch this card is based on- see what you think!
Inks: Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender, Purple and Crimson (also used to watercolour)
Stamps: Paperartsy, Personal Impressions, Tanda and MSE
Paper: English Paper Company
Other: Zoomz from Stamp Galaxy and ribbon from my stash
My husband is away for part of this week, so I am really hoping that I will get a lot of stamping done after Dan is in bed. I am really inspired by my new Paperartsy stamps so have some plans for those. All I need to do now is persuade my lovely cat to get off my lap...wish me luck!
