Sketch & Stash Challenge #8

Hi everyone, well I managed to make a card for the latest Sketch & Stash challenge and that's quite an achievement at the moment, believe me!
I'm really missing visiting you all, not to mention how much I'm missing my crafting and blogging, but I'm hoping to be back by May. What a gorgeous time I'll be able to have then catching up with all your fabulous blogs, I'm planning on doing nothing else for a few days, so expect to receive lots of comments on your creations from me then LOL!

On to the card, another brilliant sketch from Becky again, she certainly designs these well, they're always a joy to follow. A huge 'thank you' to those of you who have been joining in, I'm so sorry that I haven't been able to check out your cards and leave comments again, I promise I'll try to do better once real life calms down a little for me.
This week we say goodbye to our GD Joanne, thank you for joining us Joanne, I hope you've had fun and I look forward to getting to know you better in the future.
Cathy will be on the lookout for a new GD for the next 2 challenges, so keep those entries coming!

The new items on this card are as follows:
A lovely stamped image recently sent to me, together with my new K & Co papers and Poppicraft flowers and brad

Card Details:
* Image - Sugar Nellie
* Coloured with Letraset Promarkers
* Backing papers - K & Co
* Lace papers - Joanna Sheen
* Butterfly charm - QVC
* Flowers and brad - Poppicrafts

Have fun with your cards if you're joining in and I look forward to chatting again soon.

Love the simplicity of the card. It's not too overloaded with patterns and elements and it looks elegant! Even better, balanced! Thanks for sharing!
