Sketch Saturday - 45

There is a fabulous sketch by at Tracie at Sketch Saturday this week. One of my favourite challenges that I have missed the last few weeks due to decorating and all that has been going on in these parts. I chose paper from Laura Ashley (kindly sent by the fabulous Sharon - as part of my Birthday goodies) and coloured my Gorjuss girl with distress inks. I used Basic Grey Boxer stamps at the corners of the image and as the center of the light coloured flower. My MS lace doily punch for the edges of the black strip which I finished with two overlying ribbons.

Materials
BC - White linen : DP - Laura Ashley : Image Sugar Nellie Gorjuss girl : Ranger distress inkgs : Stamps - Basic Grey - Boxer : Punches - MS Doily lace, Leone Em branch & EK Success leaf branch : Rest from stash
