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.
* 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

Hi lovely, what a wonderful card you've made! I like the image so much and the papers are just lush!
That's why my craft room always looks such a mess with all the surfaces covered in stash. If it's in a cupboard and I can't see it - I forget I've got it - even if it's something that I couldn't live without until it went into the cupboard.lol.
I think your card is beautiful, the image is coloured perfectly and the different colours and textures in the panels are fab.
