A Gem of a Challenge - my sketch

This week at A Gem of a Challenge it's my turn to provide the sketch, so I hope everyone likes it!  Here's my card....




I've used the lovely Faye with Flowers, coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The papers are digi ones from Raspberry Rd, printed onto linen card and inked around the edges with 'worn lipstick' distress ink.  The lace, ribbon, Prima 'meadowlark' flowers and the Memory Box 'madera corner' die are all from The Stamp Basket.  The numbers were cut with sizzix 'night & day' alphabet dies, and covered in stickles, sentiment was computer generated (chocolate box font) and the button is from my stash.


Hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far... sorry I think I'm behind with commenting again but will try to catch up later!  Hopefully things will get back to 'normal' again from next week, as the boys will be back at school and nursery :o)
