Girly card

So, I made a card and totally loved how it turned out (which hardly ever happens!). Then, I dropped a black ink pad on it, ink side down. I could have cried! I may have actually done momentarily, but we'll pretend that didn't happen :P The image was ruined, there was ink all over the card, so I tore off the image, covered the splodges with more paper, added a new image and this is what it turned out as.

The spotty paper behind the image covered most of the ink, the sentiment is also helping out too :P The image is a Bugaboo digi, the corners and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the sentiment is LOTV, the ribbon is from Ribbon Girl and the papers are a mixture of Forever Friends New Arrival and stuff from my stash.

A closeup of the corner! I've never used these before, I like it though! Finishes a card off nicely I think.

A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

 I had to add extra paper to cover my spill :( 
but I think the original sketch is still visible.

Thanks for looking :)
