Sketch Saturday - 39

Sketch Saturday have a great sketch to follow this week. I chose one of the new WOJ stamps and papers that I thought lent themselves to the image. I tried to maintain a vintage/victorian feel to this card. I coloured the image with pastels and used lace and pearls as accents.

The flower is made from a tutorial on my Bloggy Mate Eileen's new blog Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard. Eileen has devoted this blog to cuttlebug tutorials and makes the most gorgeous cuttlebug cards. When I saw this flower I just had to do it.
I'm pleased with the result but have to say it isn't as 'tidy' as Eileens, but I just love the distresses, vintage look to it.


Materials
BC - Bazzill : Papers - Cosco : Image - WOJ - Willow with Flowers :Derewent pastels : Cuttlebug + oval nesties & vintage corners : Lace - local market : Rest from stash

Oh, this is one gorgeous card, Heather! I love the colours you've used and the vintage feel - they work so well with this new cute SN! And thanks so much for the link to Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard. I've just popped over there to have a read - brill ideas. I'm definitely gonna have a go at that flower - I'm quite excited at the prospect as I only have the petite scalloped nesties, so it's brill that I can use them!!
