The Greeting Farm and I create a 'Sweet' Card

Hi Guys! I had a pretty terrible day, with some bad health news. So, to take my mind off it for a little while, I sat and created a card to share with you all.
This is a Crumbcake/Kraft card base, which I have layered with Pink Pirouette card stock and some patterned paper. I wrapped some white lace and some lovely 5/8" Light Pink Sheer Ruffled Edge Ribbon, from the Ribbon Carousel, then I coloured my Greeting Farm image with Stampin' Write Markers and a Blender Pen. I cut out a Spellbinder Nestabilities and sponged it lightly with Blushing Bride Ink, stamp the sentiment and made up a swirl of diamante. 
I am entering this into 3 challenges, the first is the Anyone For Anya Treats challenge, I went for something 'sweet' (with the sentiment). Next up, is The Stamp Spot Sketch challenge, and finally the Friday Mashup Inspiration photo. 
Thanks for popping by!
