Hello Everyone

And a big "HELLO" to my new follower - Lou - it was so lovely to meet you on Saturday Lou and thank you for choosing to come and visit me in my little world.

It's challenge time over at Papertake Weekly and our challenge for you this week is a sketch!  For those of you who have been with me for a while it will come as no surprise to you that I just love working with sketches as it takes all the thinking time out of trying to figure out how you are going to lay your card out :o)

So, here is the sketch for this week's challenge:

Easy huh!  You can make anything you want and you can rotate and flip the sketch as long as we can see that the sketch is still there in some shape or form then you're in.

Our generous sponsor this week for the challenge is Simon Says Stamp so if you want to be in with a chance to win, then make sure you get your entries in over at Papertake Weekly and as always, make sure you check out what the super talented DT girlies have made to give you some inspiration.

Here is my card:

What a gorgeous couple.

The recipe for the card is:

Stamp:  Lili of the Valley - Mr & Mrs
Papers:  Pion - Fiarytale of Spring - Lili of the Valley

Heart Stems:  Impression Obsession - Heart Stems

I have outlined the image with Bundled Sage Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

I have covered the Heart Stems and Filigree Corner with Shabby Green and Aged Ivory Frantage

And that's it.
