My 1st card as Guest Designer for the Sketch and Stash Challenge :-)






What a nerve wracking experience making a card as a Guest designer for the Sketch and Stash Challenge, not as easy as I thought, when I'd finished it I was happy with it but thought maybe I should start again ,,,,,
Anyway, there it is, I hope you like it.This fab sketch is by Becky :-) The Tilda is a new 'comfy tilda' which i bought from The Glitter Pot and new buttons by Papermania from Binky Crafts The tulip stamp is by Hampton Art and have had it forever,, the birds are hand drawn :-) The DP is from a 6x6 book of background papers by Crafty Individuals aand the purple distressed paper is a download from Funky Fairy's. I used my oval nesties,the scalloped one is made using purple core'dinations which have then been cuttlebugged with the script folder. I also used a strip of black/purple core'dinations underneath the ribbon too. The text is also new and is from the Whiff Of Joy sentiment set
Thanks for looking, your comments are very much appreciated :-)
