Sketch #14 - 30th August

First off i would like to say thanks to Jo for choosing me to be part of the DT for sketch saturday *Woohoo* - I am so excited i was chosen as there were so many talented ladies that entered.

Here's my DT card for the sketch:

The card itself was quick to make and as soon as i saw the sketch i knew exactly what stamp and papers i wanted to use. But when i decided on the papers (and cut it all out) i realised i had no flowers to match them so decided to make my own!! It was a bit of a trial and error process but i'm quite happy with the end result.

Papers - New basicgrey offbeat collection
Metal embellishment - making memories
lace - from stash
ribbon - papermania
stamp - Sarah Kay, stamped in impress ink and coloured with copics
Nestabilities - rectangle classic and scalloped
Flowers - made from PP and held together with rivets using a bigbite and brads in center to secure to card.

This card cost me a fortune to make as i pinched most of the supplies i used for it from my shop, but surely thats one of the perks of the, and most items such as nestibilities and the stamp will be used again and again!!

Thanks for looking. x
