My Time to Craft Challenge No. 38 - Becky's Sketch


Hi everyone, my card today is for the My Time to Craft challenge, which is a sketch. I don't usually enter this challenge, but my dear friend Becky has set the challenge this week, so I just had to enter didn't I?
If I'm honest, I find sketch challenges quite difficult, and my card hardly ever ends up looking like it should, but this one was very straightforward and I do like the layout, I may even use it again!

Card Details:
* Penny Black image sent to me by Becky (thank you my friend)
* Backing papers by Laura Ashley and K & Co
* Martha Stewart Lace Doily punch (the new love of my life!)
* Pale pink pearls from Joanna Sheen
* Flower from my stash
* Sentiment done on PC


I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank:
Beryl for giving me the Butterfly award. Beryl's blog is full of fabulous creations, go and take a look if you haven't been before.
Cathy for passing the Proximidade award on to me. Cathy hasn't been blogging for very long but her blog is simply wonderful, why not pay her a visit and see for yourselves?

oh you got a Martha Stewart punch - oh you lucky thing. Where did you manage to find one of those rare delicacies?

The card is fantastic - love the image - it looks like one of the old Penny Black ones - think they are gorgeous.
