Pears and Hollyhock and Sleeping Cherub


For today's Inspiration challenge (the borders on the home page) and for Mark's Finest Papers Speedy's Friends challenge to make your own designer paper with stamps. I used MFP's Pears and Hollyhock set colored in Copic markers and shaded with pastel chalks. Added pink satin ribbon to embellish.



I was inspired by the pink beaded cherub pillow found here:
http://roses-and-teacups.com/ Stamp is unknown, embellished with silk flowers, pearls, lace, stick pin, and white satin ribbon.
