Friday Sketch Challenge with a bit of sewing!!!

Wow this is a first - getting a card finished days before the challenge finishes and blogging it too!!!!

This card is for the Friday Sketchers challenge site - theme was to follow a sketch supplied by Jeanette.

I have used a Tilda from the YUMMY collection - a very nice one to colour in with distress inks. The paper I've used is Just Magnolia paper! Would you believe I've even used my sewing machine on this card - running short of double-sided tape, knew I wouldn't have time to shop yesterday so thought ... use the sewing machine!!!! Granted I've just used it round the edges for this card but now its all set up and ready to go - no excuses really for not using it more. I've distressed the paper edges with a pair of scissors, inked it with Vintage Photo, yet again used the Martha Stewart Doily punch, glimmer misted some cream flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, added a stamped sentiment and here it is ......

Quite a simple card really but fits the challenge just nicely I think. TTFN XX
