Sketch N Stash DT Card #97

Hi everyone, it's time for another Sketch N Stash challenge and this time our sketch was designed by Jen.
I loved this one, it's not too fussy and gives the image and papers a chance to stand out.

I just couldn't resist using this lovely image from A Day for Daisies again. She's so beautiful and reminds me of the Mucha ladies (which I love)
I realised that although I like lilacs and mauves, I hardly ever use them in cardmaking for some reason, so I thought I'd remedy that this time around. Although, to be honest, I think I may have overdone it a bit here.
I actually remembered to use one of my embossing folders for the background too. I love these but never think to use them (one of the joys of getting older and having the memory of a goldfish) and I even managed to add some 'Stardust Stickles' to the embossing to give it some added sparkle.

Card Details:
* Image - A Day for Daisies 'Mum Girl'
* Sentiment - Pink Petticoat 'Girly Curly sentiments'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and pencils
* Papers - DCWV 'Once upon a Time' and Basil Basics cardstock
* Dies - Nestabilities 'Nested Picot Edge Circles'  
* Embossing folder - Craft Concepts 'Cottage Floral'
* Everything else from my stash

We are being sponsored for the first time by Tiddlyinks who are offering our lucky winner a  $10 voucher to use in their store.
Please pop over to the challenge blog and see what the DT have come up with, check out last time's winner and Top 3, and don't forget to try to join in with us if you can.

Sketch N Stash DT Card #96

Hi everyone and welcome to another challenge from Sketch N Stash (aren't the weeks just flying by?)
The lovely sketch this fortnight was designed by our sweet Jill before she left the DT and I really enjoyed it as it gives an opportunity to show off all those pretty papers we all keep buying, rather than covering them up. I do hope you'll manage to join in the fun with us.

I recently purchased a few Saturated Canary images, but this is the first time I've used this one. I absolutely love her and think she's just perfect on cards for 'ladies of a certain age' (this includes me and lots of my friends these days, ah well)

Card Details:
* Image - Saturated Canary 'Blanche'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and pencils
* Papers - K and Company
* Everything else from my stash

We are being sponsored again by Mei Flowers, who are very generously offering a £20 voucher to our lucky winner, but you've got to be in it to win it, so get crafting.
Don't forget to check out the DT cards made by the rest of the team at our challenge blog and see if you were a winner or one of our Top 3 from the last challenge.
