Sweet Sunday Sketch #28

Hi, I wasn't going to post this until tomorrow, but then I realised I'd have to post it now if I wanted to enter it into the challenge. Figure I'll forget to do that if I wait until after work in the morning.

I've been inspired, by all the lovely cards that Sarah-Jane makes, to have a go at a Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, designed by Karen Giron.
This is the sketch,




Here is my card, sorry about the poor photo quality.



I've turned the sketch on its side as the distressed flowers seemed to work better that way. I've seen flowers similar to this on a lot of blogs, usually made with circles. I took the idea for using punched flowers from the tutorial on Dawn McVey's blog. You
might have noticed that I'm also loving SU's Build-a-brads. You can take any small image and make it into a brad. Send me an email (see box at right) if you are interested in more info about these. The background and stripe are pieces from the Bella Rose DSP, fell in love with this pack as soon as I saw it.

Anyway, I better keep moving. Thanks for visiting.

Cheers, xox
