Sketch and Stash Challenge 16 - DT card




I can't believe it's been a whole 2 weeks since I last updated my blog!
I'm afraid all the blame must be laid at the feet of those pesky 'Sims'. Each time I start to play the dratted game I promise that I'll pace myself and take days off to do other things, but then the addiction kicks in again and before I know it a week (or two!) has gone by.

Anyway, I digress so here is my DT card for Becky's latest sketch at the Sketch and Stash Challenge blog, I do hope you can join in the fun with us again.
Now I REALLY loved the simplicity of this sketch, it was such a nice change, so I decided to try to follow through and make a 'less is more' card. I hope I succeeded, I certainly liked the 'clean' look of this.
For some real inspiration just take a look at what the other DT members have done.

Card Details:
* Backing paper - K & Co
* Image - from a swap, so haven't got a clue I'm afraid!
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Sentiment - K & Co rub-on
* Everything else from my stash

I used a K & Co card that was part of a kit I bought years ago from QVC, so this and the rub-on is definitely my neglected stash and my new must be this lovely simple image. I keep forgetting I've got these rub-on sentiments, I don't know why as they're gorgeous, I really must use them more often.

Love the colour scheme Chrissie. Pink and green is great but this stronger deeper green goes really well. A very elegant card. I can't belive it's that time again already. I only just seem to have done the last one.
