Sweet and innocent - that's what I was aiming for with this one.  The Purity came from the white rose in the black and white image.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils.  At first I did the rose pink and my hubby suggested I did it red.  So for the highlights on the rose this time are done with a white gel pen, because I'd gone too far to do them with my pens and pencils.

The design paper is from Joy Crafts and I've used some black card to frame her.

The heart and sentiment (coloured black with Copic) are from Scrapienic and the ribbon I've had in my stash for ages, but I think its a Docrafts one.

Hope you like my inspiration for today
