Sketch Challenge - Craftwork Cards

Time for another sketch challenge over at Craftwork Cards - if you love sketches, why not join us on this one?
It is quite a busy sketch, and I wondered at first how I was going to get on with it, but I liked the end result....

I used Ivory and Navy colours for this. The papers are all from Craftwork cards of course, the photo corners are simply 2" squares cut diagonally in half. The leafy corners were cut from the Storybook cartridge at 2".
I cut around four of the flowers on the patterned paper. Everything was popped off the card with foam pads. The sentiment circle was put inside a great little frame - I found these in Poundland (a UK shop similar to the dollar stores in the USA). I got six vintage looking 'metal' frames, which are as light as a feather, all for £1. I do love a bargain.


As you read this, I am in the Lake District for a couple of days, far away from any sort of internet connection - I will be back..............................................
