Freshly Made Sketches..........

Hi, there, how's life treating you all, good I hope.Yesterday, I was looking at Mona's post and she'd used a sketch from a challenge blog I'd not heard of before, as I love to use sketches I headed straight over there. It's called Freshly Made Sketches, the idea behind this challenge blog is to use the sketch provided and to create a "clean" card, by clean they want you to avoid distressing, torn edges but still with the detail and embellishments and lots of "white space" and clean edges.
Here's sketch #7.


I like to have a supply of Wedding Anniversary cards and I have just used my last one so I  used the sketch for inspiration to make one.


I have quite a collection of fabrics now so decided to make some fabric flowers using a Marrianne die, I'm really pleased with how they've turned out and will certainly be making more.

Supplies 
Paper: The Girls Paperie
Punch: Martha Stewart
Stamps: SU, Waltzingmouse
Dies: Spellbinders, Marianne Designs
  
Have a great weekend.

So pretty, how clever you are. I was super excited today when I got hoe and there was a package from the UK in my mailbox. Such sweet things. I have the pin cushion all filled up already and my daughter wants the bird very badly. Thank you so much, I am really enjoying my first 'win'. I will post about it today when I get home from work. Take care.
