In a Sweet Pea Dream..

I made this card for a new Sweet Pea Challenge blog called In a Sweet Pea Dream. Theme for their first challenge is Show Us Your Dream. I dream to make fantastic, sparkly cards that are "out of this world" every day, so on this card I just let my fantasy take over and here is the result.
I used my brand new Sweet Pea stamp called The Seahorse and watercolored it. Added some Stickles for extra sparkle and paired the image up with K&Co Que Sera papers.
The ribbon is Copper Patina hand dyed silk ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and it's sooo soft and pretty - the image doesn't show it of very well...
The flower is made from sheer burgundy ribbon with some gold Stickles on the top.
Sketch is from the current challenge on The Pixie Cottage blog. I'm also entering it into Magical Monday Challenge where the theme is Under the Sea.

and one more picture just to show of the flowers I made yesterday:
