A card for a few challenges

Hi everyone :D!

I got some stamps I ordered from Mr Postman today!!  I HAD to get this one TGF stamp as soon as a saw THIS  gorgeous card!  I loved this stamp and I HAD to get it!  While I was looking for a seller online, I came across Nut Crafters who had it for 30% off at £4.40!  as soon a I saw postage would only be £1 I KNEW I was going to get it!  I also got Flutter Anya too for the same price and some gorgeous flowers!  I really wasn't expecting my package for a few days but it came today.
Here is my card, I used the sketch at Totally Gorjuss, I hope I have followed it ok!

 Also, I think I got a bargin on the sentiment stamp.  It's a stamping Bella one which I got from ebay with 7 other little sentiment stamps for only £2.50!  That came today, so I had to use it :)

I used my lovely Promarkers to colour the image in.  I used memento ink but it ran a little bit!!!  I thought it doesn't run with Promarkers?! Maybe I got different card from Paper mill than the last time I went....  I was going to colour Annika's books in but I like them white.
See the pink sponged bit around the sentiment and image?  That is done with my promarkers too!  I was quite impressed with myself when I thought of that and it worked, lol.
I cut the circles out myself, it took me a while to find a round object the right size to go with the scallop circle and then when I did find something (after searching the whole house) it was in my craft draw!
I love this paper.  It's one that Lisa sent me.  I wish I knew who it was by as I really would like to buy some!  Maybe i'll take some time soon to look on some craft shop websites and see if I can find it.
I thought I would add the little gems in the top right corner as it looked a little too plain up there!
I would like to enter this for the following challenges too:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Hot chocolate theme or Pink and Brown.
Quixotic - Hot chocolate (I hope the colours are ok!)
Crafty Cardmakers - New (My new stamp and flower!)

If the card is pearly or satin kind of card (coated) then you have to leave the ink to dry off a bit (or blast with heat gun) then it should be fine with promarkers. I use the gold dust card sometimes (white with a gold sheen) and thats the same.

Fab card hunny and yay on your new sentiment stamps :D:D:D Also congrats on the stampman blog hop!

Thank You for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers x
