Friday Sketchers #67

I really liked the look of the sketch this week on Friday Sketchers, so decided to join in again (two weeks in a row? I'm really on a roll! lol!)
This is NOT the type of sketch I usually do as it looks far too complicated, but actually it was easier than I thought and I may well be using it again. I did add another little flower on to the original sketch though, as my card looked a bit 'lopsided' without it. Obviously down to me as the sketch looked fine, but I think I messed up the paper sizes!

Card Details:
* Image - Sarah Kay 'A little help for Margot'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - HOTP and K & Co
* Everything else from my stash

I seem to be going through a 'paper crafting projects' phase at the moment. I can't seem to stop making little bags and boxes, unfortunately as you know, my photographic skills leave something to be desired and I can't scan them, so I'm unable to share them with you at the moment. However, if you think that you may like to 'have a go' at some of these little gift type projects I'd recommend checking out the tutorials here, here and here.
Thank you all for your continued visits and encouraging comments, I love to read them all.
