Sketch N Stash #118

Well, I'm back, did you miss me?
I'm sure you didn't really notice I was gone did you, come on now, confess...

The good news is, I'm not only back blogging, I'm also back with my lovely teamies at Sketch N Stash, oh how I've missed them (and all of you of course!)
Our sketch for this challenge also has the optional choice of 'Birthday Wishes' and we're being sponsored by Fred She Said for the prize of $10 to spend in her shop.

I chose to use the gorgeous 'Wheelbarrow' and purchased a sheet of the coloured images. They are just beautiful, they have the look of water colours plus they are so useful for those quick cards (or if your memory is as bad as mine, for when you have forgotten someone's birthday!)
I have been loving all the CAS cards I've seen about blogland lately, I'm not good at this style but I'm going to try to improve, hence the uncluttered look of this (well, it's uncluttered for me anyway!)

The pretty coloured backing paper is from a pack of DCWV cardstock that I purchased years ago and keep forgetting about, I ran it through the 'Cottage Floral' cuttlebug folder and punched some corners from the same cardstock. The other paper and border is from my stash. The image itself was cut out with a Spellbinders 'Labels' die and then mounted onto the 'Fleur de Lis' die.

Why not pop over to the challenge blog, take inspiration from the beautiful cards the DT have made and then join in. As well as being in with a chance to win our prize, you could be chosen as one of our 'Top 3'
