Katharina's Fancy a Challenge - Sketch 39

Another card that didn't photograph well - I'm getting really good at these !!!
A great sketch by Katharina to work with. I wanted to create a card with a 'vintage' feel to it and chose BP that my S-i-l gave me ages ago so haven't a clue who they are by. I coloured Willow and chair with pastels and highlighted the wood on the chair with gold H2O's. I've done this before and didn't like the results but it picked up the goldy bronze in the edging paper and looked right this time. I bought the paper I've used for the edging in Germany, not something I would normally go for - but now am glad I did. The flowers are cut with the EK success retro flower punches and the leaves with the Leone Em punch, brads, spacers and lace from stash.

It seems my language skills need to be strengthened, because I totally can not read your information, but I think this is a good BLOG

Read your article, if I just would say: very good, it is somewhat insufficient, but I am still tempted to say: really good!
