Sketch and Stash challenge #9


Another fabulous sketch from Becky again this week for Sketch and Stash challenge #9, can you believe we're nearly into double figures! A huge thank you to all of you who've been joining in the fun, what fabulous cards you've been making!
If you fancy joining in again this week be assured that the sketch was a great one to play with, and it's your choice where you put your embellishments and sentiments.
It's my turn to pick the next GD for challenges 11 and 12 so I'll be visiting you all over the next week, please pop 'GD' in your comment if you'd like to be considered for this.



My card this week used a new download image from Daisie Company. I love this place but hadn't visited for a while so I managed to find quite a few kits that I couldn't live without! Funnily enough they were all from the same artist, Sandi Gore Evans, I just love her stuff!
I also managed to use another new item on the card and that's the burgundy raffia (I'm not sure if it is actually raffia, but I don't know what else to call it) more about that in a minute!

Card Details:
* Image - 'Mama's Garden' kit at Daisie Company
* Papers - K and Co
* Lacy edge frame - Martha Stewart Doily lace punch
* Raffia ribbon - part of blog candy
* Everything else from my stash

I do hope you like my card and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I was lucky enough to win some blog candy from the lovely Helen a little while ago and the raffia ribbon was part of it, see the piccy for the rest of the candy, aren't I a lucky girl?

If you haven't visited her before, Helen's blog is a joy. Thank you Helen, my goodies are all gorgeous!!

Thanks so much to all my friends who have continued to visit me even though I've not been joining in much, be assured that your comments have cheered me up no end.
